An internal meeting of five European countries to discuss the acceptance of refugees and migrants aiming for Europe across the Mediterranean Sea was held in Malta, Malta, on the 23rd. The five countries, Germany, France, Italy, Malta and Finland, agreed to accept and accept refugee applications. A new sharing framework has been created following the shift in Italian immigration policy, but it cannot be foreseen whether it will be a radical measure.
“We have taken a different step forward in terms of migrant rescue and acceptance.” At a press conference after the meeting, Italian interior minister La Morgese evaluated the agreement.
According to the agreement reported by the country's media, NGO ships carrying people rescued in the Mediterranean will be allowed to enter ports such as Italy, and the status of those who applied for refugees will be reviewed within one month of landing. Recognized people will be accepted by the country according to the sharing. On the other hand, if it is judged as an economic immigrant, it will be forcibly repatriated.
Only those who have been rescued by NGOs or the government, but who landed directly on the boat without being rescued, are not eligible. Greece and Spain are expected to be synchronized, and the share of each country will be discussed at the European Union (EU) internal ministerial board meeting in Brussels next month.
