EU letter to the 27, openings in Rome on migrants


The letter speaks of enhanced cooperation, search and rescue, solidarity, relocation. 'The shipwreck of Cutro was a strong call - writes von der Leyen - A fair solution is only possible with a European and balanced approach' (ANSA)

Brussels - in view of the European Council - has sent a pre-council letter to all the leaders of the 27 countries

in which it takes stock of the main current issues including those relating to migrants on which Italian government sources contacted in this regard underline how it is ample space has been given to the priorities of the Rome executive for a more balanced overall reform on the issue of migrants.

The same sources therefore judge the letter, released by EU sources, positively, recalling that, among other things, a more expansive logic has been implemented on financial aid which should go beyond the 500 million already agreed. 

The letter speaks of enhanced cooperation, search and rescue, solidarity, relocation.

A complete mapping is made on this issue also speaking of North Africa and referring to legal economic emigration.

"The terrible shipwreck off the coast of Calabria

was a vivid reminder of the urgency of our action. A fair and lasting solution is only possible through a European and balanced approach. We can achieve more if we act together"


This is what the president of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen writes in a letter addressed to the 27 on progress on the migration dossier in view of the European Council.

The Commission, announces von der Leyen, 'in 2023 is ready to mobilize an additional 110 million euros to the 208 already committed to anti-trafficking cooperation'.

In the letter von der Leyen underlines that "balance is at the heart of the New Migration and Asylum Pact and that is why we must seize the opportunity now by following the joint roadmap of the EU Parliament and the Council and towards an agreement before the end of

the legislature".

At the same time "the operational measures discussed at the February meeting show how much we can do now. I highlighted

4 areas for immediate action: the strengthening of the external borders, rapid border and repatriation procedures; addressing the issue of secondary movements and ensure effective solidarity; work with our partners to improve migration management"

, writes the president of the European executive, updating the 27 leaders on the measures put in place by the Commission in the 4 sectors.

"In one month there has already been progress in all 4 areas," she reads in the letter.
