Rescues yes but Italy cannot accept them all, says PM

'Every time treated as an emergency hurts everyone'

(ANSA) - Trieste, September 14 - Italy cannot solve the issue of migration "through indiscriminate reception" of those arriving on its shores," Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said Friday. "We can ensure rescue but we cannot offer indiscriminate reception," he added at the 51st national meeting on ACLI research.
    "Those with the right must make a request" for asylum, he stressed, "but with a view towards managing flows, those that come must be able to integrate." He added that "we need to stop treating every time as an emergency" and deal with the matter "in a structural way, since thinking about it as an emergency hurts everyone."
