Italy seeks partners – migration crisis: Paris wants to help Rome, but …

France is fundamentally willing to work with Italy to tackle the migration crisis, Emmanuel Macron’s Interior Minister said. However, people currently arriving en masse in Lampedusa may only be accepted under certain conditions.

“France is of course willing to take on its share of the burden of accepting migrants, provided that those affected are entitled to refugee status,” French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin said.

However, Darmanin himself had declared in recent days that Paris “would not accept migrants from Lampedusa” unless they were “political refugees”. The Minister of the Interior welcomed the fact that Italy, together with Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, is no longer “playing the game of nationalism” in dealing with migration flows, which we should be happy about, because the solution to the migration problem can only be European are. said the Minister of the Interior.

“Global war” against smugglers
Before the UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday evening, Meloni called on all countries to wage a “global war” against human trafficking. “It is the duty of this organization to declare global war on human traffickers. To achieve this we must work together at all levels and Italy wants to be at the forefront,” the Prime Minister said.

Italy wants to create a partnership model to work with African countries so that they can grow and prosper thanks to the resources they possess. “This should be cooperation on equal terms, because Africa does not need subsidies, but must be enabled to compete on equal terms, to make strategic investments that link the fate of nations to projects of mutual benefit,” explains Meloni out.

More and more people are arriving in Italy
Nearly 130,000 people have arrived in Italy by sea since the beginning of the year, twice as many as in the same period in 2022. Most migrants come from Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and Tunisia. Last week alone, around 10,000 people reached the island of Lampedusa, between Sicily and Tunisia.
