World should 'bet' on Iran reforms, Italian PM says
Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta on Monday hailed Iranian President Hassan Rohani's diplomatic opening as "an opportunity" that should not be passed up and said Iran could help resolve the conflict in Syria.


"I think it would be in everyone's interests to bet on the success of the reforms" in Iran, Letta said after a trip by Foreign Minister Emma Bonino to Tehran this past weekend in a rare visit by a top European official. (AFP)
