The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Angelino Alfano, today had a telephone conversation with the Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation, Sergey V. Lavrov.
The two ministers agreed to meet shortly, at the first possible opportunity, which will be in Bonn on 16 and 17 February, on the fringes of the G20 Meeting.
They also shared the wish to maintain and strengthen the already excellent bilateral relations. Minister Lavrov then invited Minister Alfano to a bilateral meeting to be held in Moscow in the near future.
The talk enabled the two ministers to take stock of the current international situation, with a special focus on Libya and Ukraine.
