UN Refugee Agency Called On other countries to help Italy

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) on Thursday supposed that Italy should not be the only country taking in migrants, who have crossed the Mediterranean Sea backing Rome’s call for burden-sharing.

Before then, Italy threatened to turn away foreign ships ran by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) that carried rescued migrants unless other EU countries agreed to

UNCHR spokesperson Cecile Pouilly, told dpa in Geneva“Solutions cannot just be in Italy,’’ 

Adding that Greater solidarity from other countries is needed, including broader regional responsibility sharing responses for disembarkation,’’

 Also stating that such plans should be developed urgently.

Meanwhile, reports has shown that Italy has become the main entry point for refugees and migrants in Europe, with over 81,900 new arrivals since the beginning of the year.

Rome’s hard-line message filtered out following the record rescue of nearly 10,000 migrants since the weekend, and in the wake of Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni’s failure at last week’s EU summit to convince partners to take in more asylum seekers.
