Italian Interior Minister in Algeria, 'strategic alliance' with Algiers discussed

Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti paid, on Monday,  a working visit to Algeria, during which he spoke of a “strategic alliance” between the two countries on security, immigration and development, ANSA reported.

His comments came following a meeting with his counterpart Noureddine Bedoui and prior to meetings with the country’s foreign minister and prime minister.

“We already have excellent relations between our two countries; today we can say that we have improved them further,” Minniti said.

“We have ancient relations with Algeria. We are grateful to this country for what it has done in the fight against terrorism. If, during a very difficult time, Algeria hadn’t held up, the history of the Mediterranean probably would have changed too,” Minniti said.

Minniti called the meeting with Bedoui “very positive” and said they discussed the fight against terrorism and human trafficking.

“We have decided to further implement the relationship of cooperation between our two countries, which derives from an accord signed by the interior ministers in 2009,” Minniti said.

“This relationship of cooperation already works in a very important way between the Algerian and Italian security agencies, the Algerian Gendarmerie and the Italian Carabinieri,” he added.

The new accord could be signed as early as October in Rome.
