Italy expresses support for French operation in Mali

Rome, January 14 - Italy expressed its strong support for France's operation in Mali during a telephone conversation Monday between Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi and his colleague Laurent Fabius, sources say. Italy had also been given prior notice of the French action launched last week, foreign ministry sources told ANSA. In support of Mali's government, late last week France attacked Islamic militants opposing the government of the West African country. During the two ministers' phone conversation, they agreed on shared goals including a commitment to stability in Mali and an agreement to oppose terrorist movements.
