(CGTN) A joint police patrol between China and Italy kicked off Monday in Rome.

This is the third time that the two countries have carried out such a patrol.

Ten uniformed Chinese officers will be patrolling areas in Rome, Milan, Venice and Prato in collaboration with their Italian colleagues from May 28 to June 17.

These Chinese officers will assist Italian police in handling issues related to the safety of Chinese citizens, Chinese with foreign nationality, and overseas Chinese.

During the joint patrol, a hotline for Chinese will be set up, in which the Chinese personnel will assist the Italian side in dealing with related issues.

In addition, the Chinese and Italian police officers will visit the neighborhoods and workplaces of overseas Chinese to learn about the relevant security conditions and needs.

After the conclusion of the patrol, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security will also invite the Italian police to send personnel to China for joint patrols.

"Sino-Italian joint patrol is an innovative attempt by the Chinese public security agencies to further protect the security of overseas Chinese citizens," Li Ruiyu, the Chinese ambassador to Italy, said.

Li noted that the joint patrol also contributes to the development of Sino-Italian bilateral relations.

"It will help deepen the law enforcement cooperation between China and Italy and effectively protect the personal and property safety of Chinese citizens and overseas Chinese," Li added.

According to the agreement between the two countries, Chinese police officers went to Italy to carry out joint patrols in May 2016 and June 2017. Italian police officers first came to China to launch the patrol from April to May in 2017.

It's a twilighty thing to do. Why single out Chinese to benefit from the offer of police patrols with speakers of their first language?

Although I can understand that CHinese experience a level of insecurity when they go shopping with full wallets in Rome or Paris, I must say they are not the only foreigners whose safety is at risk.

Then again, the Chinese ambassador betrayed the ulterior intention: TO protect OVERSEAS CHINESE in Italy.

Why should Italians of Chinese extraction be protected by a foreign police force in Italy?
Real Overseas Chinese in Italy number very few; the bulk of CHinese living permanently in Italy comprises ILLEGAL residents. Do they deserve this privilege?

re: Do they deserve this privilege?

Of course they do,  do you want to see Italy crumble as Greece did?
   China’s Takeover of the Port of Piraeus in Greece saved the Country. A big Blowback for Europe of course...

  Or have you forgotten who was responsible the meltdown in Helena, money sharks from overseas ol'chap.
