Consenting to the request of the United States, Italy has accepted the application filed by Fayiz Ahmad Yahia Suleiman, a Yemeni citizen detained in the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, to be taken in by Italy for humanitarian reasons.

The decision of the Italian government is in line with the joint EU-US statement of 15 June 2009 supporting the closure of the detention camp and with the European Commission Statement of April 2013.
