"Today's result is a task force between Italy and the Commission," she told reporters.
Malmstroem said it was "too early" to say when a major new EU operation to stop such disasters would start.
"All the member States said that (border agency) Frontex can be used in different ways and can do more," she said.
"But it is too early to say when the operation will start.
"We have to talk to Frontex, hear what they need and then we will come back to speak with the member States".
