International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - Alfano:

On the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Italy reaffirms its staunch commitment against all forms of racism, xenophobia and intolerance around the world.

“The elimination of all forms of racial discrimination is a challenge for the entire international community that must be met in synergy, also with civil society organisations. Educating especially young generations to respect human rights and to tolerance is key to this culture war,” said the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Angelino Alfano.

He continued: “Italy supports the broadest possible adhesion to and the full enforcement of the International Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination, which Italy ratified in 1976.”
