Italy plans to extend decree on arms deliveries to Ukraine

Nov 21, 2022

The Italian government will ask the parliament to approve a new decree on military and civilian supplies to Ukraine during 2023.

Italian Defense Minister Guido Crozetto said this in an interview with Il Foglio newspaper published Monday, according to Reuters.

The Italian government can send aid to Ukraine each time without asking parliament's permission, based on a decree that expires at the end of the year.

"The Defense Ministry will soon propose to renew this measure, extending it to the entire year 2023," Crozetto said.

Italy will continue to supply weapons as before, "at the time and in the ways that we agree with our Atlantic allies and with Kyiv," the minister added.
