Milan, May 21 - Milan, as a ''friendly,
cosmopolitan city'', is the perfect location for the "festival
of integration" that will be Expo 2015, Italian Foreign Minister
Emma Bonino said Tuesday.
''I'd like to make Expo 2015 a joyous celebration of
cultural integration that looks to the future,'' Bonino said
during a United Nations conference in Italy's business capital
on making the most of the world's water supplies.
That means Expo 2015 should be a forum for bringing
together cultures from a variety of countries, she added.
''None of us is called to disavow their roots.... but there
is no future if you look only at (your) roots,'' Bonino said.
Bonino also reaffirmed the Italian government's commitment
to the international fair, noting that despite deep budget cuts,
allocations for Expo 2015 have not been cut.
''A tangible sign (of our commitment) is that at this
difficult time, is that one budget has not been touched - the
one related to Expo,'' she said.
''Imagine how hard it was (to do that)".
