Moscow is confident that the current turbulence in the world will not affect prospects of cooperation of Russia and Italy, said the acting Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov in interview to magazine «Russian Business Guide – Italian-Russian Chamber of Commerce».

According to Lavrov, «promoted by Washington and Brussels sanctions spiral will negatively affect Russian-Italian cooperation», as Italy should be in the mainstream of European and transatlantic solidarity against Moscow. However, expressed confidence that the diplomat will not have an impact on the development of cooperation between Russia and Italy.

«Today, due to a new round of pressure on Russia, our relations are further tested. However sure, on the basis of objective interest of the business communities of the two countries to strengthen practical cooperation, the current turbulence in the world will not affect prospects of Russian-Italian cooperation», — said Lavrov.
