Italy not to take part in Syria bombing

TEHRAN, Apr. 12 (MNA) – Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said in a series of Syria-related phone talks that Rome will not take part in military action against Bashar Assad's government.

According to Agenzia Nova, Gentiloni stressed, though, that Italy will continue to provide logistics support to allies in line with international and bilateral agreements.

In the wake of US President Donald Trump's threats to attack Syria in retaliation to an alleged chemical attack which he quickly blamed on the Syrian government, European countries unveil their stance on the possible bombing of Syria.

Earlier in the day, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Berlin would not join bombing campaign in Syria and a range of other measures must be considered to tackle the crisis in Syria.
