Italian PM wishes Pope Francis a speedy recovery

Rome, Jul 5 (Prensa Latina) Italy's Prime Minister Mario Draghi on Monday expressed affectionate wishes for a speedy recovery to Pope Francis, after the surgery to which he underwent for a symptomatic diverticular stenosis of the colon.

The head of State conveyed to Francis ‘the affectionate thoughts of all Italians’, along with ‘the warmest wishes for a better and faster recovery.’

Main Italian media closely follow the postoperative recovery of the Pontiff who reacted well to the surgery performed on Sunday with general anesthesia, according to the most recent official information released Sunday evening by Matteo Bruni, director of the Holy See Press Office.
