Rome, 29 Oct. (AKI) - The United States is "extremely grateful" for the contribution being made by Italian forces in Afghanistan and the sacrifices being made by its troops, ambassador to Italy David Thorne said on Monday.
"We are extremely grateful for the support and for the work being done for peace and stability in Afghanistan by all of Italy's forces," Thorne said during a debate held at the Rome headquarters of Italian media group Adnkronos, where he met its owner and president Giuseppe Marra.
Thorne attended the funeral held on Sunday of Tiziano Chierotti, the Italian corporal killed last week in an ambush by insurgent gunmen in western Afghanistan.
