All the criticism has extended to Italy, his migration deal with Libya on schedule. With some Change requests that are soon to be discussed in a meeting of the joint Commission. The rights of migrants should be better protected, say it in a verbal note, sent by Rome to Tripoli and in the Libyan Camps such as in the case of the interception actions in front of the coasts of.
But the Foundation of the "Memorandum of Understanding" remains untouched. the Luigi Di Maio , Italy's Minister of foreign Affairs of the Cinque point, justifies the decision thus: "If we terminate the agreement altogether, that would open the gates for 700'000 migrants, waiting in Libya to come to us." The roughly estimated number is controversial, like so much in this story.
under the agreement, which was signed in February of 2017, in a Phase of strong migration flows. Alone in 2016, had more than sets of 160'000 people over, sometimes there were several Thousand in a single day. Italian TV news was Bulletin of the arrivals, every day it's the same images from Lampedusa and Sicily.
In Rome, ruled at that time, the social Democrats, Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni was. And the king was under increasing pressure to get the phenomenon of some of the mass in the handle. The pressure was greater, as the partner States were in the European Union, the country alone. The Minister of the interior Marco Minniti, a post-Communist, with a heavy Hand, the well-liked even Right.
Minniti, has negotiated a comprehensive agreement with the Libyans, traveled constantly in the former Italian colony, visited the tribal elders and mayors in the South, so they were protecting the border better, and promised to guard Tripoli to the North of the country, training and ships for his own Libyan coast.

Soon there were rumors, Minniti've been in a parallel Deal, the militias that had worked until then as a tractor, a million promises, if you would now help to prevent the ships in the Store. He denied it always.
But only a few months after the signing of the Memorandum, the number of Crossings dropped dramatically – and in the middle of the summer, in the most intense travel time. The Left believed that the sudden obtained in the trend, which continues today, would help her politically at home. Theoretically, you grub so Yes, of the xenophobic Right in order to Matteo Salvini of the Lega the water. You also took a moral compromise in buying.
militiamen were security guards on a night-to-Coast. A well-known smuggler boss and brigade chief, the 30-year-old Abd al-Rahman al-Milad, better known as "Bija", traveled with official delegations to Rome to interviews in the Ministry of the interior. The news magazine "L'Espresso" recently showed a photo: "Bija" in addition to Ministers and dignitaries.
Also, therefore, NGOs always talk of the "so-called Libyan coast guard". More than 38'000 of migrants has brought in the past two years, intercepted and returned to Libya. In Rome and Brussels, we took the, although the war-torn country is no safe haven. In Libya, the migrants were put in the camp, of whom it was said, it's detention centres were"". Inspection showed, however, that the bearings are prisons. It is tortured to raped, even killed. The United Nations languages, once of the "unimaginable Horror".
As to start the changes now. The Italians are demanding that at least in the 19 Camps, which are managed by the Libyan unit of government, international organizations unrestricted access. This is not the case at the Moment, although from Brussels, plenty of money flows.
the goal is, all of these stocks. Who has the right to asylum in Europe, to come on a humanitarian corridor to its destination. Who is ready to escape halfway cancel and voluntarily return to their homeland, to be able to travel with Charter flights.
The only question is whether the Libyans to join in. In a first reaction, the government in Tripoli had to align, you had to Changes to the Memorandum but would have to be in your senses. The newspaper "Corriere della Sera" writes, Tripoli insist that the Italians made good on a whole series of missed counter transactions: satellite phones, binoculars for the night, delivery trucks, other boats, 30 Jeeps, ambulances, buses, oxygen bottles for diving operations – Material for about 800 million euros. This number appears in an Annex to the Memorandum. Were not delivered with the tool yet.
Maybe the Libyans are now demanding even more. The prospects, to be heard, are good. Because the new Roman government from the Cinque point, and the Partito Democratico can afford to do a total u-turn in the migration policy for domestic political reasons.
the Salvini is just waiting. At the weekend, as an Italian cargo ship, the rescue of 200 migrants on two rubber dinghies in front of Libya filed the "Alan Kurdi" of the organization Sea Eye with 88 passengers price on Taranto took, tweeted the former Minister of the interior: "The Invasion has begun again: Is the government an accomplice or incompetent?"
