The F35 fighter-bomber acquisition programme is part of a comprehensive review of the strategic needs of the Italian defence system of which the United States have been informed. The point was made by Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini during a meeting with the press in Washington DC. “As the Americans know, Italy – like all the other NATO allies – has been reviewing its National Security Strategy, which in Italy we call a “white paper’”, explained Mogherini. She pointed out that the programme was discussed during American President Barack Obama’s visit to Italy in March 2014. Source: Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor.
