The Hindu, 12 February 2007

Italy wants to see a greater role of India as a regional player and wants to cooperate closely with it in creating a 'better world', the Italian Prime Minister, Romano Prodi, said. "Regional cooperation and integration are indispensible tools to adapt to global changes. India has a major role to play in this process, not only as a regional player, but as a bridge between different worlds, identities and cultures," Prodi said at a special convocation of the Calcutta University to confer the D.Litt (Honoris causa) on him.
