Vienna shd show 'welcoming face' to migrants-Mogherini (3)

'Don't raise walls' says EU foreign affairs chief

(ANSA) - Lampedusa, April 15 - Austria should show a welcoming face to migrants instead of raising walls against them, EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said on a visit to the Italian island of Lampedusa Friday. "I hope that Austria doesn't raise walls but shows a welcoming face, as it did last summer," Mogherini said after meeting Lampedusa Mayor Giusi Nicolini and visiting the island's migrant centre. Austria is building a 250-metre yard wall on its side of the Brenner Pass border crossing with Italy to keep a feared influx of thousands of migrants and refugees out.
