Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Tajani meets Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mélanie Joly

Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, today received Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mélanie Joly at Villa Madama.

As stated by Deputy Prime Minister Tajani, “relations between Italy and Canada are currently booming, benefiting from a phase of intense synergy and cooperation, as evidenced by the high frequency of institutional meetings between the two countries in recent years”.

Once again condemning Iran’s recent attack on Israel, Minister Tajani emphasised the need to avoid a further escalation of the conflict in the Middle East, and recalled the Italian Government’s efforts, also in its role as G7 Presidency, to urge the parties involved to exercise restraint.

Ample space was also devoted to the conflict in Ukraine and the actions that the two NATO member states intend to implement to support Kiev for however long it takes to achieve a just peace.

The meeting then focused on the shared commitments within the G7 Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, scheduled to take place in Capri from 17 to 19 April.
Deputy Prime Minister Tajani emphasised the objectives of Italy’s G7 Presidency, which include the defence of multilateralism as a guarantee for peaceful coexistence among nations, the resumption of a political dialogue between Israel and Palestine to ensure the “two peoples, two states” solution, freedom to navigate in the Red Sea, and support for Ukraine with an eye to its reconstruction.
