Marco Minniti, Italy's Interior Minister, called on Friday for the extension of the partnership agreement between Al-Qarawiyyin University and Italy's Siena University regarding the training of imams.

During a symposium, initiated by the Islamic and Cultural Center of Rome and held under the theme "Italian Muslims Together for a Solidarity Society," Minniti stressed that the "training experience of imams will allow the Muslim community to better interact and integrate into society."
