Washington, February 15 - United States President
Barack Obama on Friday thanked Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano for his country's "tremendous" contribution to NATO
forces on such international missions as Afghanistan.
Napolitano used the platform to remind the United States of
the progress Italy has made with recent economic and fiscal
reforms, and urged that these continue.
"Italy has made great progress in the past 14 months, with
the understanding and support of different political forces, and
this progress can and must continue," said Napolitano, who was
expected to brief Obama on the progress of the Italian national
election set for February 24 and 25.
Obama also offered a little sugar to melt the ice during
their meeting, coming one day after Napolitano arrived in
Washington on the February 14 Valentine's Day celebrations.
"Dear President, I offer you a warm welcome and your
arrival on Valentine's Day seems appropriate and allows me to
express my love to you and the Italian people," said Obama.
