Abstract

 

Agreement of cooperation with respect to irregular migrants, between Egypt and Italy

 

This agreement was signed in Rome on January 9, 2007. It was published in the Official Gazette following the President’s Decree 163/2007 on June 26, 2008. The agreement aims at the return to their states of origin of citizens of either state who do not meet the residence requirements of the other state party. The agreement compels the state that sent a citizen of a third country by mistake to the other contracting state to take the person back. This agreement is subordinate to each state’s obligations in international law, especially the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
