Italy withdraws from Egypt its Ambassador

Italy decided to withdraw its Ambassador from Egypt for consultations because of the situation with the investigation into the murder of 28-year-old Italian student Giulio Regeni.

According to DW, a student was killed in Cairo more than two months ago.

«We want only one thing: the truth about what happened to Giulio,» said the Minister of foreign Affairs of Italy Paolo Gentiloni.

At the same time, Egyptian authorities refuse to send Italian investigators all the information on the case.

The representative of Prosecutor’s office of Egypt Mustafa Suleiman said that the Egyptian reluctance of parties to submit the phone records of Regene is because it would be a violation of the Constitution.

Note, the 28-year-old Italian who studied at the British University of Cambridge, worked on his dissertation about the Egyptian independent trade unions. Regini disappeared on January 25 in downtown Cairo, his body with signs of torture, was found nine days on the outskirts of the capital of Egypt.

Note, January 27, 2015 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine recognized Russia as an aggressor state.

In March, Parliament was registered a draft resolution on the termination of diplomatic relations with the Russian Federation. The Committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported the draft resolution.

In the PPO immediately stated that the severance of diplomatic relations with Russia will lead to escalation of hostilities and repression against Ukrainians in the Russian Federation.

Also, the President Petro Poroshenko did not support the idea of breaking off diplomatic relations with Russia and believes that efforts should be focused on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. During communication with the Ukrainian community in Washington March 31, 2016, responding to a question whether he would sign a bill to cut off diplomatic relations with Russia in case of its adoption by Parliament, Poroshenko said: «Parliament will not support this bill. Let’s not even discuss».
