Di Maio visits the Italian-Latin American Institute

Italy's foreign minister Luigi Di Maio met with the Council of Delegates of the Italian-Latin American Institute (IILA) at the organization's headquarters, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

"In Italy's foreign policy towards Latin America and the Caribbean, the Institute plays a traditional role as a bridge between our country and the South Atlantic coast," the statement said.

IILA brings together Italy and 20 Latin American countries. Founded in 1966 in Rome, its aim is to develop, coordinate and disseminate research and documentation on the problems and prospects of member countries in the cultural, scientific, social and development cooperation fields.
