This was reported by La 7 with reference to a statement by Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Mayo, Ukrinform reports.

Di Mayo said that he had recently made several business trips, including to Algeria and Qatar, to agree on expanding energy cooperation.
"This should reduce Italy's dependence on Russian gas," he said.

In turn, the share of Russian gas in Italy's energy sector is 19%, which is significantly more than that even in Germany (12%).
