On the sad occasion of the sudden passing of David Sassoli,the Ministry of Foreign Affairs empathises with the bereavement felt by Italy, the great European Family and his loved ones. The Ministry remembers the President of the European Parliament, who had a virtuous political and journalistic experience behind him, which outlined the profile of an intelligent, cultured and popular man.
We recall Sassoli's strong democratic spirit, passion and unconditional promotion of European values for the strengthening of union and solidarity between peoples and nations. The same values were unanimously acknowledged in his constant striving for the common good and in his service to Institutions and citizens.
"Having learned of the sad passing of President David Sassoli, authoritatively and passionately involved in the European Institutions, on behalf of the San Marino Government and on my own behalf, I express my deepest condolences to the friendly Italian nation, the European Institutions and the Sassoli family", declared the Minister of Foreign Affairs Luca Beccari.
