Migrants, cdm in Cutro on Thursday. The EU responds to Meloni: “We must act”

Palazzo Chigi denies rumors about a summons to Palazzo Chigi by the Minister of the Interior and alleged friction with migrants. “The indiscretions that have appeared in some media regarding a summons to Palazzo Chigi by the Minister of the Interior, Matteo Piantedosi, and alleged disagreements over the government’s internal line on immigration, are literally invented and therefore devoid of any foundation” , we read in a note from the Presidency of the Council. In short, the government is approaching and, as announced, the next Council of Ministers will take place in Cutro, scene of the tragic shipwreck of migrants. The CDM was summoned for Thursday: the meeting will take place in the afternoon, informs Palazzo Chigi.

Meanwhile, the European Commission “received the letter” sent to President Ursula von der Leyen by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and will respond “shortly”. The information was supplied by the spokeswoman for the EU’s internal affairs executive, Anitta Hipper, in Brussels, during the press briefing. “We are in agreement-he adds-on the need to act and therefore the president urged to redouble efforts to implement the migratory pact. At the same time, we must continue the implementation of the action plan for the Central Mediterranean”, she adds. .

“If we do not address the causes that create these situations, we will continue to face tragedies,” said the spokeswoman for the European Commission in response to a request for comment on the conclusions of the weekend’s Med5 meeting on immigration. “For our part, we have always been very clear that we must always ensure that lives are saved and that there is a legal obligation to save lives,” Hipper said.
