On the Regeni case, "no hesitation": Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani told ANSA, on the sidelines of the Conference on the Balkans underway in Trieste.
"We continue to work to reach the truth, so that the perpetrators of the murder are convicted.
We will continue to insist with Egypt
that full light can be shed and the perpetrators can be prosecuted. But we must speak with Egypt on other issues because we have the duty to ensure the stability of North Africa and Libya," he added.
On the Regeni case, Tajani will answer tomorrow in Parliament at question time.
President al-Sisi raised the Regeni problem himself
, he said that Egypt will do everything to eliminate the obstacles that exist and which make dialogue with Italy difficult. I listened and we will see if the words will be followed by the facts", said Tajani referring to the meeting he had with the Egyptian president.
"Egypt has a certain influence over Libya, as does Turkey. We spoke to Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, where the Prime Minister was yesterday", explained Tajani.
The minister recalled that "Egypt is a large country in the Mediterranean area, we must ensure that there is stability. We do not underestimate the risks of terrorism - he took as an example - In the Sahel area the presence of of terrorism, in Somalia there is a strong offensive of terrorism, and then in Congo, in sub-Saharan Africa... Egypt is decisive in the fight against terrorism".
