Rome: Italy’s government is eager to keep a “cultural presence” alive in Syria and other war-wracked parts of the Middle East, Deputy Foreign Minister Marina Sereni told archaeologists at a meeting here Wednesday, the Foreign Ministry said.

“Keeping the flame of our cultural presence in Syria and in other Middle Eastern countries undergoing a serious political and humanitarian crisis at the moment goes beyond the already significant tasks and merits of the Mission,” Sereni told members of the Italian Archaeological Mission in the Near East from Rome’s La Sapienza University.

“For this reason, besides extending our country’s thanks to our archaeologists, maximum support must also be guaranteed,” she underlined. (IANS)
