"Commander in Chief"
Today in Russia comes former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
As told "Kommersant" source in the party "Forza Italia", led by ex-prime minister, the visit will last from Wednesday to Sunday and has a "private nature". The main event in his agenda will be the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As confirmed by a source "b", Berlusconi plans to discuss with the Russian leader crises in Syria and Ukraine. According to the Italian version of the American edition of Huffington Post, former prime minister of Italy will try to "engage Putin's anti-terrorist campaign, putting forward a diplomatic initiative that could lead to the lifting of sanctions against Russia and the thawing of relations with the United States."
According to the newspaper, Berlusconi 'dreams to repeat the experience of rapprochement between Russia and NATO ", successfully arranged to Rome in 2002, when between the alliance and Moscow signed the Rome Declaration. Only now, the aim of this convergence should become the joint fight against the terrorist group "Islamic State" (IG).
Berlusconi's position on this issue is well known. In his opinion, "the IG to win, you need a broad international coalition, which would include all the countries of NATO and Russia, and which would operate under the auspices of the UN."
Despite the fact that the mission is not Berlusconi's formal character, in Rome may be interested in the mediation of the former prime minister, has maintained friendly relations with the Russian leader. Especially that Italian politicians agree: without the participation of Russia nor the Syrian problem, no problem can not be solved IG.
