“The government expresses its satisfaction for France’s decision to initiate judicial procedures, requested by Italy, against those responsible for very serious crimes of terrorism, which have left an open wound,” Draghi’s office said in a statement.

“The memory of those barbaric acts is alive in the Italian conscience,” the statement added.
