Rome, January 28 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti
said Monday that the Italian government's plan to provide France
with logistical support for its military intervention in Mali
had been dropped for the moment because the measure does not
have the necessary backing from political parties.
Monti said the three main parties that backed his emergency
technocrat administration before one, ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, withdrew its support
last month, had either said no to supporting the French or "had
an attitude of great caution".
"We don't have the support of the three (main) parties that
would be necessary in parliament for a legislative measure to
authorise the government to do this," Monti told La7 television.
Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said, however, that the issue
would probably be raised again after next month's general
election.
"It is definitely a priority for the next parliament. We
are confident the issue can be addressed," Terzi said.
"But at the moment the political conditions are not there
with a government that is leaving office".
