Italy loyal to NATO Renzi tells House

Relations with U.S. 'stronger than ever'

(ANSA) - Rome, December 16 - Premier Matteo Renzi told the Lower House Wednesday that Italy's long-standing loyalty to NATO does not impede an ability to engage in dialogue with others outside the pact.
    The center-left premier added Italy's relationship with the United States "has never been stronger than in the past two years". Renzi came to power in 2013.
    "Our tradition, history, faith and loyalty is towards the Atlantic Pact and this is not in contrast with our capacity for dialogue, for listening and for being balanced," he told MPs ahead of the next summit of European leaders on December 17 and 18.
