Bawan Allahgoubekoy and the commander of the Bilateral Support Mission in Niger the gen. b. Alessandro Grassano.

The donation strengthens the already solid relations of cooperation between Italy and Niger which in recent years have become increasingly stable thanks to the work of the men and women operating in MISIN in support of the Nigerian Defense and Security Forces (FDS), in the delicate task of fight against local organized crime, the fight against terrorism and illegal trafficking in human beings.
