Need a clear response to Moscow-Matterella-English

(ANSA)-Rome, June 23-President Sergio Mattarella said Thursday that the West needed to maintain a unified stance with Moscow after Russia invaded Ukraine.
“The conflict caused by Moscow due to the anachronistic thirst of power requires a clear and unified response to restore a state of peace,” Mattarella told the National Conference on Development Cooperation.
Heads of State have repeatedly supported Western sanctions against Russia in response to the war in Ukraine.
Mattarella also talked about Agenda 2030 and said Italy is still working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
He said the contributions of foreigners living in Italy are “valuable”.
“The labor of migrants has a positive effect on the functioning of our productive and welfare system, and also contributes to the development of our country of origin,” he said.
“Global remittances to low- and middle-income countries reached around 550 billion euros in 2021 alone.” (ANSA).
