The Republic of Italy would like to underline the graveness of the ISIS threat. They are at our doorstep! The risk is imminent, this kidnapping is just one out of many examples, and we cannot wait any longer. We cannot have a caliphate ruling across the shores of the Mediterranean. We are all in favour of a military intervention and a long duration peacekeeping mission. We would also like to inform the other delegations that “boots on ground” is a necessary step.
