Crucial, in this sense, the meeting tomorrow in Moscow between Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin, which supports the strong man of Cyrene, so far, contrary to the truce. Today we will also be meeting at Palazzo Chigi between Giuseppe Conte and Serraj: following the tensions of the past few days that followed the summit between the Count and Haftar. Europe after the divisions of the past months, especially between France and Italy, looking to get on the field together, even if with a situation that may be already compromised.
Mission Sophia Yesterday the High representative of the Eu, Josep Borrell, has a mandate to work "to a cease-fire and a political solution in the framework of the process of Berlin". At that point he said, "we will focus on the monitoring of the cease-fire, on an arms embargo and other security measures on the basis of Sophia". This is the naval mission Eu in the Mediterranean left to dry last year by Matteo Salvini, giving the libyan coasts, to the traffickers of all kinds. But Sophia at this point would not be enough. And in fact, in closed talks, the ministers have asked Borrell to present for the January 20, ideas to a larger mission, with a new name and that it includes a block of weapons not only by sea but also by air and by land. With the presence in Libya of european staff and trainers. A complicated project and that still assumes the cease-fire. In this case, the plan will be launched, or at least baptized, at the Berlin conference, for which, however, there is still a date. You work for it in days. the Scenario syrian This scenario would lead to a crystallization of the situation, with the spectre of syria, a Country divided between Putin and Erdogan: a damage to interests and the security of the Union. For this reason, the German Foreign minister, Heiko Maas, has pointed out that the embargo must be accompanied by "a political process under the Un auspices". For Borrell a step in a hurry: in Libya are growing risks of terrorism, with fighters arriving from Syria and Sudan, and migrants, with 700 thousand foreigners could be forced to leave for Europe.
Penalties to Turkey has a Fundamental role of Putin and Erdogan: Merkel is scheduled to meet the first today, while according to the Spiegel on January 24, will be in Ankara to speak to the second. The goal is to convince him not to defect to the Berlin conference, who otherwise would lose sense. But will try to persuade Erdogan to maintain the agreement with the Eu on migrants, thanks to which, in exchange of 6 billion, Turkey has hosted over 3 million refugees from syria. The point is that in these hours the europeans are in the process of finalising the list of people and companies that will be affected by Eu sanctions for the drilling of the Turkish waters and cyprus, the activities that after months of threats, diplomatic europeans can no longer tolerate. Before giving the go-ahead to the sanctions, expected within a handful of weeks, Berlin wants the eu to commit to pay a new tranche of money to the migrants in order to appease the wrath of Erdogan, who repeatedly has threatened to make them leave to Europe. Just yesterday, meanwhile, Serraj has signed an agreement which provides for orders for the Turkish companies in Tripoli.
