Ukraine: Italy not part of debate on sending tanks - Tajani

Committed to sending missile defence systems with France says FM

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 23 - Italy is not part of the debate about Ukraine's request to send German Leopard 2 tanks to help fight off the Russian invasion, Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said Monday.
    Berlin has so far not agreed to send the formidable fighting machines and has urged countries that have them to also not do so, although Poland has said it will ignore that request. Italy "is not part of the debate on sending tanks to Ukraine", Tajani said on the sidelines of the foreign affairs council in Brussels, confirming that the issue was discussed at the meeting of the 27 but will continue at a "bilateral" level.
    "Italy is now committed together with the French to the delivery of anti-missile defence systems and the work continues in that direction," the foreign minister added. (ANSA).
