Italian Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi said on Monday, that his country "Italy needs Turkey's cooperation on dossiers like Libya and beyond" stressing that there will be a new exchange of visits between Italy and Turkey.

This came during Piantedosi's visit to Ankara, where a memorandum of understanding was signed on cooperation between the Italian border police and Turkey.

"The memorandum of understanding that we signed was not just an official act to formalize this friendship, but something we attach importance to and we will provide operational participation at the level of police officers," the Italian minister said.

Piantedosi's visit to the Turkish capital comes only three days after the Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani was in the city.
