The migrant issue is one of the most urgent to deal with for Mario Draghi, who has to face the decision of the civil judge of Ragusa to lift the fine of 300 thousand euros and confiscate it from the Eleonore ship of the German NGO Mission Lifeline. The Germans in 2019 forced a ban on entry into Italian waters in 2019 to disembark 101 migrants. In this way, the Taliban of hospitality will be able to return. The news reported by Il Giornale does not change the plan of the Prime Minister, who is trying to set up a common European front against departures from the African coasts. “Italy and Spain will join forces at the doors of the next EU Council by sharing an urgent appeal to Europe to respond to the challenges of immigration, balancing the principles of humanity, solidarity and shared responsibility” explain the sources of Palazzo Chigi after the trip in the Iberian land of the Premier.
“Greece regularly rejects migrants arriving from Turkey. And it has adopted a register for NGOs with draconian rules, under penalty of being banned. We should do it too ”highlights a source working on the migration crisis. But now Draghi must have the support of France and Germany to change things: the Italian plan provides for a “new partnership agreement with Libya” that goes directly to the European Union. Something similar to what happened in 2008 with the pact between Silvio Berlusconi and Colonel Gaddafi. The European border control agency is also planning an expenditure of 150 million euros for a sweep of the North African coasts with airplanes and drones. And there would be economic and operational support for the Libyan Coast Guard.
