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 2021 Italy, as presidency of the G20 and partner of the United Kingdom for COP26, has constantly promoted international commitment to the challenges facing the Mena region. 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 Med Dialogues, reaffirming the effort of our country on the ground 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 appointment that has rekindled the spotlight on the many crises that cross the Mediterranean, deeply interconnected, from migrants to Libya to anti-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 whom "in the Mediterranean of the crises of unresolved tensions, the equations of peace and stability cannot be solved 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 of regional current events, starting with the challenges linked to migration.


   "Europe is experiencing a demographic winter, there is a need for people to come from outside, but to manage all this there is a need for a common immigration and asylum policy. And so far, I'm sorry to say, the Member States of the The EU did not agree and the commission's proposals were not accepted ", noted in his speech the High Representative of the EU, 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, who also addressed the various knots of Brussels foreign policy, from Syria - confirming thecommitment on humanitarian aid but excluding any recognition of the Bashar al Assad regime - from Iran, with which the EU will continue to mediate the next week in nuclear negotiations in Vienna ("We are trying to save" the Jcpoa, but "we cannot expect them to return to the agreement without anything 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. Crisis from which, however, opportunities for reforms that have been expected "for years" may arise, as the EU Commissioner for Economy PaoloGentiloni recalled, defining the Next generation as a "historic" transition that "only two years ago would have been unthinkable". IlCovid has changed everything,blowing up paradigms and certainties and reviving the pushes towards a different future, from energy to civil rights. "The real message of Med 2021 - underlined the ISPI president Giampiero Massolo, evoking the green movement inspired by Greta Thunberg - is that squares, people count. Complex processes cannot be managed without people". (HANDLE).
