NEW YORK, JANUARY 18TH- A fruitful discussion with international agencies dealing with security took place today at Italy’s Permanent Representation at the UN. The discussion was organized in occasion of a visit from the Antimafia Commission of the Italian Parliament, chaired by the Senator Nicola Morra.

The meeting focused on the importance of strengthening international cooperation in the fight against terrorism and organized crime, and saw the participation of Unodc, Interpol, the UN’s anti-terrorism office, and the anti-terrorism Security Council Committee. The Palermo Convention -a UN agreement against transnational crime, signed in 2000- was also discussed. The parliamentarians belonging to the Italian Antimafia Commission furthermore visited the Carabinieri exhibition at the UN Headquarters, entitled “The art of saving art”, on the protection of cultural patrimony.
