Italy’s South Tyrol may serve as model for Ukraine's east — Italian FM

Italian autonomous region Trentino-Alto-Adige, also known as South Tyrol, can serve as a model for the settlement of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine’s east that could help to preserve the country’s territorial integrity, the Italian foreign minister told a local daily on Wednesday.

In an interview with La Stampa daily Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said that "the model of our South Tyrol may suit the eastern regions of Ukraine."

"There is certainly a different context but this way we may find a solution to the preservation of the Ukrainian sovereignty and protection of its borders with the respect of minorities’ rights," Gentiloni said.
