Italian Admiral Andrea Toscano proposes that Italy's navy make more calls at Russian ports and practice tasks in the Black Sea together with Russian ships, a Black Sea Fleet spokesman said Tuesday.

"We could practice tasks together, including in the Black Sea," Toscano, the head of the autonomous naval command of Sicily, was quoted as saying by the Russian spokesman.

A Russian Black Sea Fleet guided missile frigate, the Ladny, on Tuesday completed its operational call in the Sicilian port of Augusta.

The Ioniex 2008 Russian-Italian naval drills took place in the Ionian Sea on October 6-9.
