(AGI) - Rome, May 26 - Economic sanctions under discussion against Iran would damage Italy in particular, which is an important trade partner of Iran. This was the statement by Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema, in an interview with the Israeli newspaper "Maariv". The head of the foreign office warned of the risks of an escalation in the international clash over the nuclear program of the Islamic Republic. "not only us, but also Americans believe that the possibility of a military attack on Iran is a disastrous possibility", explained D'Alema, "when we find ourselves faced with such a choice, we must evaluate costs and benefits for all parties involved". The foreign ministry spokesperson, Pasquale Terracciano, explained in a briefing that D'Alema feels that it is important for Italy to be involved in negotiations on the Iranian nuclear program. "In the un-hoped-for possibility in which an agreement cannot be found, Italy will pay a price and it is only fair that it has a say in the matter and not only because others have raised their voices". Terracciano spoke about the fact that on Tuesday Italy participated in London with the political director Giulio Terzi in a meeting as part of the G8 on Iran's nuclear program. "The countries of the G8 must be joined together in dealing with this delicate international issue", insisted the foreign office spokesperson, especially because Italy believes it has " a particular format adapted to favouring the treatment of sensitive political issues".
