April 5, 2011 - TAP  - Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni held Tuesday a news conference to announce that Tunisia and Italy had signed a technical agreement in matters of immigration.
In a statement to TAP news agency, he said this accord should secure better co-operation between the two countries' security services with a series of measures and provide Tunisia with logistic equipment according to a pre-established programme.
This co-operation also aims to block off the flow of illegal migrants to Italy.
The Minister, who did not reveal the amounts allocated for the equipment, added that the accord provided as well for the repatriation of Tunisian illegal migrants.
