Italian Parliament to debate supply of weapons to Iraqi Kurdistan

After the green light by the European Union, Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini stated that it is up to the Italian Parliament to decide whether or not Italy will supply to Iraq-Kurd Government with weapons to be used against IS.

Mrs Mogherini also stressed that no weapons will be made available without the consent of the central Iraqi Government.

Until the Nineties, when the Government banned this line of production, Italy was a major producer of anti-personnel mines.
