ROME (Sputnik) Relations between Rome and Washington would not change after Donald Trump’s election as the US president and will remain on the same high level, Italy’s Defense Minister Roberta Pinotti said on Thursday.

"I've listened to Donald Trump’s speech after the election, and I think that his posture differs a lot from his speeches during the election campaign. I'm sure that nothing will change in the solid relations between Italy and the United States," Pinotti said in an interview with Corriere della Sera.

She also noted that Italy was enjoying 70 years of friendship with the United States, and she was sure that these relations would remain the same good.

Pinotti added that at the same time it was important for Italy to preserve dialogue with Russia.

"We need to avoid returning to the Cold War atmosphere, especially given such a difficult period we are going through now, struggling with fundamental terrorism," the minister said.

He stressed that fighting with terrorism would take a long time.

Trump won the US presidency in Tuesday’s election, having gained 290 Electoral College votes, or 20 more than the 270 needed to win.
