The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Angelino Alfano, will go on a mission to Algiers to participate in the 14th Meeting of the Foreign Affairs Ministers of the 5+5 Dialogue (Algeria, France, Italy, Libya, Malta, Morocco, Mauritania, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia), to take place on Sunday, 21 January, in Algiers.

“Italy has a strategic interest in the stability and development of the Mediterranean region. The 5+5 Dialogue is one of the major traditional fora for regional dialogue, which greatly contributes to enhancing cooperation and integration between the two shores of the Mediterranean Sea, with a view to consolidating the positive agenda for this region,” said Minister Alfano ahead of his mission. 

On the eve of the Meeting, in the evening of Saturday 20 January, the Minister will hold talks with his Algerian colleague, Abdelkader Messahel.

Following the family photo, the Plenary Session of the 5+5 Dialogue will take place at 10:40 a.m. on Sunday, at which Minister Alfano is also scheduled to speak. 

The head of the Foreign Ministry will then represent Italy at the panel on local crises and regional security, which will focus on themes such as terrorism and deradicalisation, Libya, the Sahel, Syria, Iraq and the Middle East.
