Mission to Niger to stem migrant traffic - Trenta

'Finally unblocked after 8-mt impasse'

(ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - Italy is finally poised to launch a mission to Niger to stem the migrant traffic there, Defence Minister Elisabetta Trenta.
    "We've done it: after eight months of impasse we have unblocked the mission to Niger to control migrant flows!" she said on Facebook. The mission's goal will be to "stem, together with the Niger forces, trafficking in humans and migrants who cross the country to then head for Libya and finally embark for our shores," Trenta said.
