Cooperation Agreement between Libya and Italy.
Libyan Leader Moamer Gaddafi and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi laid the foundation stone for Libya's new coastal highway on Sunday (August 30th). The nearly 2000km highway will run from Tunisia to Egypt. The project's launch ceremony in Touisha, east of Tripoli, included Italian jets streaming vapour trails in Libya's national colour of green, BBC reported. Berlusconi's visit marked the first anniversary of the Friendship, Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between Libya and Italy. Under the accord, Italy pledged to spend 3.5 billion euros for the next 25 years as compensation for occupying Libya from 1911-1942.
