Italy backs roadworks on Libya's borders with Tunisia, Egypt
Road construction project to extend from Libya's Ras Ajdair border with Tunisia to its Imssaed border with Egypt
Government officials from Italy and Libya are reportedly putting the “final touches” for works on the road extension from the North African country's Ras Ajdair border with Tunisia and the Imssaed border with Egypt.
According to local news outlet The Libya Observer, the Libyan embassy in Rome said construction work on the coastal road in Libya would be carried out as part of the 'Friendship Agreement' between the two countries.
The agreement was reportedly signed between Libya and Italy in 2008 to carry out infrastructure projects worth $5bn in Libya, and saw the allocation of $250m each year for a period of 20 years.
