(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 21 - Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said Tuesday that the government will present a bill in parliament to ratify the agreement it has reached with Tirana to set up migrant centres in Albania. There had been some initial talk of there being no need for this international agreement to be approved by parliament, something that led opposition parties to cry foul. "The government intends to quickly submit a ratification bill to Parliament that will also contain the rules and the funding allocations necessary for implementation of the protocol," Tajani told the Lower House.
    "Today's debate (on the agreement) and the vote at the end of it demonstrate, if there were any need, that our government has never shied away from dialogue and parliamentary scrutiny, especially on issues of such importance". (ANSA).
