Humanitarian corridors to welcome refugees: Italy is in favor but cannot be left alone. The minister says so Luciana Lamorgese. “We have NGO ships that have many migrants on board. It is right that they are saved, but it is unfair that it is only Italy” to do it. “It cannot be a load that only the country of first landing must have.” This was stated by the Minister of the Interior speaking at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding for Afghan Humanitarian Corridors. “It is also unfair because we are in a pandemic and have organizational difficulties. I have always talked about this – he added – with the European Commissioner Ylva Johansson and I will do it also in these days. We need greater participation by European countries for a just redistribution of migrants according to the principle of solidarity ”.

I am 1,200 Afghans in need of international protection who will arrive in Italy through humanitarian corridors. This is foreseen by a memorandum of understanding signed today at the Viminale – in the presence of the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese – with the representatives of the Farnesina, the CEI, the Community of Sant’Egidio, the Federation of Evangelical Churches, the Waldensian Table, the ARCI, IOM, UNHCR and the National Institute for the promotion of the health of migrant populations and the fight against diseases of poverty (Inmp). The aim of the agreement is to open a legal entry channel for Afghan citizens from Pakistan, Iran and any other countries of first asylum or transit countries.

“This summer, military planes brought about 5,000 Afghans to Italy. Today we signed the memorandum of understanding to get another 1,200 and I hope that, with everyone’s commitment, we will reach two thousand. In a recent international meeting I noticed that not all European countries have this propensity to welcome, to respect human rights. Europe is not always present, not everyone agreed with the welcome, they said “let’s give resources but to their home”“. The Afghan people, Lamorgese recalled, “suffered and found themselves in great difficulty. Italy is a welcoming country, we have increased the places in the Sai network (Reception and integration system) precisely because it guarantees a different integration path, with knowledge of the language and respect for the rules and the Government has been on the side of the Ministry of ‘Interior who proposed the initiative ».
