ROME – Italian Foreign Minister Luigi de Maio said on Monday that his country is currently assessing its participation in the European naval operation of IRINI with 500 soldiers, a marine vessel and three aircraft, indicating that this process would be subject to a vote in the two chambers of Parliament, according to a statement quoted by AKI news.
