Minister Terzi meets with Myanmar Interior Minister, Ko Ko

Minister for Foreign Affairs Giulio Terzi met today at the foreign ministry in Rome with Minister for the Interior of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar Ko Ko, in Rome for the 81st Interpol General Assembly.

Speaking with Minister Ko Ko, Minister Terzi expressed Italy’s appreciation for the Burmese government efforts at democratic reforms, recalling how Italy had encouraged the European Union’s decision to suspend the sanctions in order to facilitate the success of those reforms.

Terzi also underscored Italy’s intention act within the European framework to foreground positive developments in the democratisation of Burmese society and political approach, so as to give a positive orientation to the imminent debate on the sanctions, in the conviction that the national reconciliation process under way can proceed and grow stronger, and ensure, in particular, equal rights and opportunities to all the ethnic and religious components of the Burmese society.

And it was in this same context that Terzi reiterated Italy’s desire to support the economic and social development of Myanmar through both training and development cooperation activities as well as by promoting more robust bilateral trade relations.
