Bersani told the Israelian-Palestinian question is the most important problem in Arabian world. Moreover, Democratic Party's secretary sentenced Italy should vote in favor of the concession of the UN observer status to Palestine.
Florence's young mayor Matteo Renzi sentenced that the most important problem in the Arabian world is the Iranian one. According to Renzi, without democracy in Iran, Israel will be never sure, Palestine will be not independent, and Italy should not vote for UN observer status to Palestine as the USA and Great Britain.
Florence's young mayor added that the Arab Awakening has been a democratic movement which lost its values of freedom after extremists came to power in several Arabian countries.
What concerns Europe, Bersani told the EU should make social politics in order to ensure worker classes jobs and rights.
Democratic Party's secretary also stated in Europe all progressive forces should create an alliance in order to balance German Chancellor Angela Merkel's moderate politics.

Renzi told Italy should dialogue with US President Barack Obama as an European country which aims to foster the transatlantic relationship.
What concerns internal politics, Bersani supported a double turn's electoral system as the German one, in which political forces establish governmental coalition after the vote.
Renzi told the best electoral system for Italy is the one used to elect majors, in which the City's Head and every councillor are directly chosen by electors.
Last interesting point concerned the political alliance. Bersani supported an alliance between centre-left coalition's parties - the Democratic Party, left wing SEL party, the Socialist Party and centrist API party - with centre-left IDV party, left far wing FDS parties' federation, and centrist UDC political force.
