Italy–USA : Minister Gentiloni received at the Farnesina a delegation of Congressmen led by Harold Rogers, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee

This morning Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Paolo Gentiloni, received at the Farnesina a delegation of U.S. Congressmen led by Harold Rogers, Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations.

The meeting, which followed talks with the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, offered a new opportunity to confirm the intensity of bilateral relations with the United States and to take stock of the major international issues: the migration and refugee crisis in the Mediterranean, the recent developments in Turkey’s political situation and the role played by Italy in the Coalition to counter ISIL.
