Responding to a question on the possible use of Italian bases, as occurred during strikes on Libya, Letta replied that ''it is absolutely clear that without the authorization of the United Nations our active participation will be impossible''.
''I know very well that Italy has a clear legal framework to participate in these initiatives,'' added Letta. ''We need the authorization of the United Nations. We are in Afghanistan and in Lebanon with the UN''.
