Italy's foreign minister to visit Washington on Jan. 3-4

ROME — Italy's foreign minister, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, will be visiting Washington in early January, meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at the State Department and with national security adviser John Bolton at the White House.

Italy's Foreign Ministry said Friday that topics for the Jan. 3-4 meetings include global security, the migrant situation in the Mediterranean Sea, efforts to stabilize Libya, peace efforts in the Middle East, economic and social growth in Africa and trans-Atlantic political, economic and commercial ties.

The ministry said "Italy intends to further intensity its relations with the United States," which have been enhanced by nearly two centuries of an Italian-American community "that enlivens American life with its cultural, entrepreneurial and political dynamism."
