Italy is very satisfied with the result achieved yesterday in Luxembourg by the EU Council of Interior Ministers. This was stated by the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Antonio Tajani, in a meeting with the press on the second study day of the European People's Party (EPP) in Rome. “Finally Europe has understood that the migration issue must be tackled all together. It can't just be a problem of some countries,” Tajani said. “It is not the search for a short-term solution. It is necessary to solve the problem upstream, to look at what is happening at the African level ”, he continued, adding that“ the right not to emigrate must be protected ”. “Italy is doing its part, working with Tunisia and beyond. I'll be in Washington next week. We will push for Tunisia to be looked at more carefully”, continued the minister.


Italy has achieved a lot, "many of our requests have been accepted", continued Tajani. "There is more solidarity, there is a very important choice which is the possibility of expulsion and accompaniment not only in the countries of origin but also in transit".

The minister underlined that it is "important that the idea of ​​paying Italy, which does not need money to solve the migration problem, has been rejected". "It is right to finance a fund for a strategic policy that resolves the issue," added Tajani. “I want to emphasize what Weber said: the problem is European. It is right that the founding countries should not be left on their own”, continued the minister.
