Germany: Italy wants to renegotiate terms of 'Operation Sophia’ migrant rescue mission

Italy will allow refugees rescued by the European Union's anti-trafficking mission 'Operation Sophia' to land in Italy until member states figure out how to divide up new arrivals, as outlined Italian Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi in Berlin on Monday. «We need to get a change to the operative rules, in order to stop all landings of people in only one country,» explained Moavero Milanesi... Еще, who at called on countries to share the burden of migration. Speaking at an event alongside the Italian foreign minister, was German counterpart Heiko Maas. He appreciated that Italy had «understandable and legitimate» demands. «It makes sense that Italy says we can't save everyone and there has to be a solution or a mechanism to share them over all European countries,» he noted. Under Operation Sophia's current terms, all rescued migrants exclusively disembark at Italian ports and harbours.
