The difference of the positions of Russia and the countries of Europe to the situation in Ukraine can lead to a freezing of relations, said the Minister of foreign Affairs of Italy Paolo Gentiloni.
He said that " Italy's position has been consistent and clear in the last few years." The Minister drew attention that the leadership of Italy has never concealed his opinions, and the fact that between 2 countries are at odds, for example, on the Ukrainian question.
"But we never believed and do not believe that such differences must result in the suspension between Italy, Europe and Russia. Not the interests of any party", He said at a press conference following the meeting with the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov.
