Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
April 20, 2013


I congratulate President Napolitano on his re-election as President of Italy and commend the admirable sense of duty that compelled him to continue in office in the service of the Italian people. Italy is a key transatlantic Ally and friend of the United States. I am confident that, under President Napolitano's guidance, Italy will move forward toward a stable government, determined to continue its leadership in Europe and beyond.
