Top of the agenda were the Olympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026. Mrs Meloni offered her full support for successful Olympic Games.
"These Games are very important for us. Italy is more than able to stage magnificent Games, and we want to impress the world again. You can count on us," she said.
President Bach was joined in the meeting by the President of the Italian NOC (CONI), Giovanni Malagó, who is also an IOC Member and President of the Milano Cortina 2026 Organising Committee.
