Italian Govt. Announces They Will NOT Meet With Ahmadinejad!

Here’s a bit of advice for the Obama bunch…
The Italian Government today said that they will not meet with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad while he is attending meetings at the U.N. food summit in Italy.
Reuters reported:

An Italian leftist politician has announced a ‘sit-in’ protest against both leaders, while an Iranian exile group said it would hold a demonstration against Ahmadinejad’s visit…

The Iranian leader’s visit has already created a diplomatic headache for Italy and the Holy See after he was said to have requested a meeting with the Pope and Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The Rome government ruled any talks out, citing time constraints, and the Pope’s schedule for the week as of Monday mentioned no audiences for the heads of state attending the summit, either as a group or on an individual basis.
