Italy's foreign minister said he will not participate in an anti-Iran rally in Rome on Thursday evening to avoid damaging Italian national interests. Foreign Minister Gianfranco Fini issued a statement a few hours before the torch-lit demonstration outside the Iranian embassy to protest remarks by the Iranian president that Israel should be "wiped off the map." "My physical presence, as foreign minister, at this evening's rally could cause harmful consequences to our national interests and to the security of our fellow citizens from the Iranian side."
