Di Maio closes the Med, ‘Italy committed to rights’ Borrell appeal: ‘The EU is united or there will be another Belarus’ ROME (by Cristoforo Spinella) (ANSA) – ROME, 04 DEC – “During the 2021 Italy, as presidency of the G20 and partner of the United Kingdom for COP26, has constantly promoted international commitment on the challenges facing the Mena region. The objective that has guided us in this action, which we will continue to pursue , is the construction of a future centered on people and their rights. Even in the great enlarged Mediterranean “. After two days of meetings and debates, Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio pulls the strings of the seventh edition of the Med Dialogues, reaffirming the effort of our country in the field of “multilateralism” to look at the Mare Nostrum as a bridge between Europe and Africa . The two days organized in Rome by the Foreign Ministry and ISPI, returned this year with a hybrid formula after the entirely virtual one of 2020 due to Covid, ends after more than 40 meetings animated by 180 guests between institutional representatives, politicians, analysts, activists and journalists. An event that has rekindled the spotlight on the many deeply interconnected crises that cross the Mediterranean, from migrants to Libya to terrorism. “In all these scenarios, Italy’s commitment falls within the framework of a collective effort. The territorial defeat of Daesh by the Coalition is another example of the effectiveness of the multilateral approach”, underlined Di Maio, according to to which “in the Mediterranean of crises and unresolved tensions, the equations of peace and stability are not resolved through unilateral solutions, much less military”. In this “hub of strategic reflection”, as the Foreign Minister defined it, the discussion focused on some of the thorniest issues in the region today. Starting with the challenges related to migration.

“Europe is experiencing a demographic winter, we need people who come from outside, but to manage all this we need a common immigration and asylum policy. And so far, I’m sorry to say, the States EU members did not agree and the commission’s proposals were not accepted “, noted in his speech the EU High Representative, Josep Borrell. “Immigration is a problem that is exacerbated by situations like that of Belarus, which has called people from all over the world with false promises. We cannot afford it, we cannot allow people to become a weapon,” warned Borrell. which also addressed the various issues in Brussels’ foreign policy, from Syria – confirming the commitment to humanitarian aid but excluding any recognition of the Bashar al Assad regime – to Iran, with which the EU will continue to mediate next week in nuclear negotiations in Vienna (“We are trying to save” the JCPOA, but “we cannot expect them to return to the agreement with nothing in return”). An edition that has come at a time when the post-pandemic recovery is accompanied by fears of a further resurgence of the virus, in constant dialogue with the emergency linked to climate change. However, this crisis can give rise to opportunities for reforms that have been expected “for years”, as the EU Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni recalled, defining the Next generation as a “historic” transition that “only two years ago would have been unthinkable”. Covid has changed everything, blowing up paradigms and certainties and reviving the pressures towards a different future, from energy to civil rights. “The real message of Med 2021 – underlined the president of ISPI Giampiero Massolo, evoking the green movement inspired by Greta Thunberg – is that squares, people count. Complex processes cannot be managed without people”. (HANDLE).
