Ukraine: Meloni voices full political and military support

Leaders talk peace plan, air defence system supply says Zelensky

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 27 - Premier Giorgia Meloni on Tuesday voiced Italy's full political and military support for Ukraine in a telephone conversation with President Volodymyr Zelensky, the premier's office at Palazzo Chigi said.
    Inviting Zelensky to Rome, Meloni's office said their cordial conversation followed a telephone conversation that Meloni and Zelensky had on 28 October.
    Meloni renewed the Italian government's full support for Kyiv in the political, military, economic and humanitarian spheres, in the restoration of energy infrastructure and in the future reconstruction of Ukraine, Palazzo Chigi said.
    Meloni reiterated Italy's maximum commitment to every and all useful action to achieve a just peace for the Ukrainian nation.
    Zelensky said earlier Tuesday he had phoned Meloni and thanked her for Italy's continued support, also with military aid, for Kyiv's fight against the Russian invasion.
    He said the two leaders discussed a peace plan and Italy's supplying air defence systems to the missile-struck nation. Zelensky wrote on Twitter: "Thanked @GiorgiaMeloni for solidarity and comprehensive support for Ukraine. Commended Italian government's allocation of additional €10 million in aid. Mrs. Meloni informed that the issue of providing air defense systems to protect Ukrainian skies is being considered.
    We discussed #PeaceFormula" (ANSA).
