EU States extend the Navy's use of Sophia by three months

The EU naval deployment in the Mediterranean sea, in the extension, although initially only for three months. This is a compromise, Italy, had previously threatened to Veto. Remains a point of contention, the distribution of the refugees.

The threat for the EU naval deployment in the Mediterranean sea is for the time being, averted. The EU member States decided, on the 31. To extend the December-ending mandate for the Operation of the "Sophia" of three months. This is a compromise, after Italy had threatened for months with a Veto.

The government in Rome had wanted to agree to an extension of the mandate actually only if it comes in the future, to a fair distribution of migrants rescued during the mission at sea. Which, in turn, countered by the fact that countries like Hungary or Poland refuse a redistribution mechanism to agree. Now, to be searched up to the end of March to reach an agreement.
