In Afghanistan “there are still 32 Italians who do not want to return”. This was announced by the Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, in his reply before the Foreign and Defense Committees of the House and Senate. According to Di Maio, should some of them change their minds, Italy is ready to repatriate them in the last days of the evacuation process from Kabul.
“No Italian diplomat has a mandate to speak with the Taliban regime”, added the minister, further explaining that like Italy, similar to what happened in the past in Libya, “we could decide to open an embassy in a neighboring country or leave it open. a European delegation (in Kabul, ed), but it is a decision that we should all take together “.
