Italian and Maltese Foreign Affairs Ministers meet following migration clash
The Malta Independent: The Italian and Maltese foreign ministers met following a clash over a migrant rescue boat that escalated into a European-wide showdown.
The Italian foreign ministry said that Italy’s Enzo Moavero Milanesi and Malta’s Carmelo Abela, met Friday in Rome and expressed “the shared desire to work together in tight coordination, especially in European capitals, about migration in terms of revising” EU asylum regulations.
In a statement, the Maltese government said the two ministers “reaffirmed their strong commitment to intensify the excellent and historical bilateral ties on various levels between the two countries. They underscored the opportunities for the further strengthening of such relations, in particular with regard to close coordination in the field of migration, both on a bilateral and well as a European level, in the context of the revision of the Dublin Regulation.”
