U.S. has 'faith' in Italy overcoming vote impasse

Rome, February 28 - The U.S. ambassador to Rome, David Thorne, said Thursday that Washington hopes Italy will find a solution to the complex post-election situation because "Italy is an important ally of the USA". Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting in Rome Thursday between new U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib, the head of the internationally recognized Syrian opposition alliance, Thorne said: "I have faith in Italy, an important ally". Following general elections in Italy Sunday and Monday, no clear winner emerged with a working majority in parliament. Asked by a reporter what type of government alliance the U.S. would like to see emerge, Thorne responded: "It's the Italians who have to express their preference".
