BRUSSELS, 27 SEPT - "We do not comment on draft laws that we have not seen so far". In general our position is that "detention is a measure that can only be applied as a last resort, when no alternative measure can be applied". This was said by EU Commission spokeswoman Anitta Hipper regarding the government's new migrant decree, which also provides for a crackdown on minors.
Another 'no comment' comes on the position of the memorandum on Tunisia. "It was a bilateral mission and we don't comment on it." This was stated by the spokeswoman of the EU Commission regarding the visit of Tunisian Foreign Minister Nabil Ammar to Moscow, where she signed a trade agreement with her Russian counterpart. Regarding Kais Saied's rejection of the planned visit of a delegation of Commission officials, the spokeswoman explained that "contacts with the Tunisian authorities, at all levels, continue". "We do not speculate" on the episode, "we are focused on the implementation of the Memorandum", the spokeswoman pointed out in front of those who asked him if Saied had given reasons for the postponement of the European mission.
