Immigration – Far-right Italian council president welcomes representatives from most Mediterranean countries
Giorgia Meloni welcomed this Sunday in Rome the leaders of the Mediterranean countries to promote a new mode of cooperation between countries of immigration and countries of emigration, on the model of the agreement signed by the EU with Tunisia with the aim of curbing the arrival of migrants on the Old Continent. Italy’s far-right prime minister opened the conference by setting the priorities for what she calls “the Rome process”.
“Fight against illegal immigration, management of legal immigration flows, support for refugees, and above all, the most important thing, otherwise all that we will do will be insufficient, broad cooperation to support the development of Africa, and particularly of the countries of origin” of migrants, she detailed.
Without France or Spain
Among the personalities present, the presidents of Tunisia Kais Saied, of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed ben Zayed, of Mauritania Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, the president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and the president of the European Council Charles Michel, the High Commissioner of the UNHCR, Filippo Grandi, and delegates from the major international financial institutions. France and Spain have no representatives.
