Rome (IP) – The Italians once again staged large-scale demonstrations in the country's major cities against the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Iran PressEurope: Thousands of Romans rallied in the capital's central streets on Friday evening, chanting slogans against NATO's aggressive policies and calling for an end to arms shipments to Ukraine. They also called for peace to prevail in the country.
