The premier’s visit continues Mario Draghi in Israel.
The first stop today was a visit to Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem. Welcoming the prime minister were Yad Vashem president Danny Dayan and justice minister Gideon Saar.
“May the silence of this place help us to face the violence of our times”, said Prime Minister Mario Draghi, underlining that “Yad Vashem testifies to the horrors of the Shoah, the courage of those who opposed it reminds us of the value of memory and the fight against indifference in the fight against anti-Semitism. Italy is strongly committed to the defense of human dignity, in the rejection of all forms of hatred, in the rejection of all discrimination and in the search for peace “.

“We also discussed the risk of a food catastrophe due to the blockade of the Black Sea ports – he continued -. We must operate with the utmost urgency the safe corridors for the transport of grain. We have very little time, because in a few weeks the new harvest will be ready. and it might be impossible to keep it “.
