Consolidate migrant results says Gentiloni

Italy policies should be 'Europeanised'

07 September, 13:17
(ANSA) - Ljubljana - Premier Paolo Gentiloni on Thursday said Italy's success in cutting migrant arrivals was clear but policy must be consolidated and "Europeanised as much as possible".

Speaking at a joint press conference with Slovenian Premier Miro Cerar, Gentiloni said "the results on immigration can be seen, namely the reduction of landings and migratory flows, which is a result of our policy and the support of the EU". There was an 82% drop in migrant arrivals in Italy in August thanks to a deal with Libya and a code of conduct for migrant-rescuing NGOs.
