By Yemane GebreMeskel
Italian National Day celebrated yesterday in Asmara at "Villa Roma". Excerpts from statement of Italian Ambassador, Mr. Stefano Pistelli:
"I was immediately fascinated by the beauty of this Nation; by the kindness & strength of its people; by the order, cleanliness & sense of security. Together with new Ambassadors, we had the sense that much more could be done to promote development & friendly ties between our countries..On some issues, we covered a lot of ground; on others our positions are distant. But we meet & talk, agree & disagree striving for better world. Italy has decided to re-start its bilateral development co-operation; Italian companies are increasingly becoming interested in this market."
