Italy working against all Jewish discrimination - Draghi

Fight political use of hatred, PM says in Jerusalem

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 13 - Italy is working against all anti-Jewish discrimination, Premier Mario Draghi said at the Italian Temple in Jerusalem Monday.
    "Italian institutions and civil society have for many years been active in the fight against anti-semitism," he said.
    "The government is working to combat discrimination of all kinds against the Jews".
    He said "in moments of crisis, of uncertainty, of war, such as we are living through, it is even more important to firmly oppose the political use of hatred.
    "We must promote tolerance, mutual respect, and love for one another: these are the real ingredients of a lasting peace. The history of your community is an example which should be looked to with pride".
    Draghi added that Israeli-Italian ties were being boosted, from the economy to research.
    Draghi is meeting Israeli officials with the Ukraine war, energy and anti-semitism high on the agenda. (ANSA).
