Rome [ENA] On 6th May in the Magistral Palace in Rome a memorandum of understanding reinforcing international cooperation for developing third parties has been signed between the Directorate General for Development Cooperation of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Sovereign Order of Malta. The memorandum has been signed, for Italy, by the Ambassador Giorgio Marrapodi, since February 2018 Director General

for Development Cooperation of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Sovereign Order of Malta. The memorandum has been signed, for Italy, by the Ambassador Giorgio Marrapodi, since February 2018 Director General for Development Cooperation and, for the Order of Malta, Ambassador Stefano Ronca, Secretary General of Foreign Affairs and ambassador to the Italian Republic. Ambassador Ronca said that the goal of the memorandum is to encourage joint development cooperation initiatives in favour of third parties by sharing the respective experiences in the cooperation sector. He expressed his gratitude to his Italian counterpart “for a result that heralds future projects,” because it promotes joint missions in countries

considered as priorities as well as the organization of shared training activities. The Order of Malta’s Italian Relief Corps will be in charge for coordinating the initiatives. For his part, Ambassador Giorgio Marrapodi highlighted “the Order’s significant evolution from a legal standpoint over the last twenty years,” and the increase of its humanitarian activities, “arriving at today’s signature, important because we can work together in third parties of primary interest for Italy and the Order, creating synergies between subjects of international law who have common visions on common issues.”

The main area of intervention for the cooperation initiatives in third parties will be public health, including that of mothers, infants and minors and anyway health protection for the weaker sections of society. The agreement has a duration of three years and will be automatically renewed for another three years unless one of the parties agrees otherwise. Founded in Jerusalem in the 11th century, the Sovereign Order of Malta is a lay religious Catholic order and an independent subject of international law concerned with medical and humanitarian assistance.
