Why Italy wouldn’t accept a boat carrying 600 migrants - but Spain will

Why Italy wouldn’t accept a boat carrying 600 migrants - but Spain will

Authorities on the French island of Corsica also offered to host the migrants after SOS Mediterranee raised fears that the Aquarius would not be able to reach Spain safely due to deteriorating weather conditions.

Despite his comments, SOS Mediterranee insisted Tuesday that it would continue its rescue activities off the coast of Libya once the Aquarius had returned from Spain. But the Aquarius is heavily overcrowded, making the four-day trip to Spain particularly perilous.

ICS is "deeply concerned about the apparent new policy of the Italian Government to close its ports to migrants rescued by vessels operated by humanitarian NGOs".

"If allowed to go unchallenged, [this] will discourage and compromise the lifesaving work of NGO's leaving thousands of migrants and refugees adrift in the Mediterranean", Elisa De Pieri, Amnesty's Italy researcher, said in a statement on Tuesday. Like the Aquarius, the Sea-Watch 3 rescued migrants in the waters off Libya, where human smugglers are based and asylum-hopefuls have reported torture, beatings, rape and scarce rations in migrant detention centers.

"This shows what happens when there are not enough rescue assets at sea", said Sea Watch spokesman Ruben Neugebauer.

The outgoing Democratic Party government had already intensified cooperation with Libyan authorities to stop departures and enable Libyan coast guard forces to intercept migrant boats in worldwide waters and take people back to horrific conditions in arbitrary detention in Libya. The country has often complained that the European Union was not doing enough to help with the influx of around 700,000 African migrants since 2013.

Matteo Salvini, Italy's new interior minister and head of the far-right League, has said his move this week is aimed at forcing other European states to help bear the strain.

Malta and the new populist government in Italy both refused to take the migrants in, accusing each other of failing to meet their obligations.

Macron told a cabinet meeting that under maritime law, "in cases of distress, those with the closest coastline have a responsibility to respond", spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said. Earlier, a spokesperson for Macron's party, Gabriel Attal, said on a TV show that "the line of the Italian government is nauseating".

Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said his country had "asked for a gesture of solidarity from Europe and this gesture has been made". "This time we say no", Mr Salvini said, urging Malta, to accept the ship.

Antoine Griezmann ‘decision’ similar to Man Utd agreement
Lemar is now in Russian Federation with the France national side, as they prepare to embark on their World Cup campaign. Griezmann, 27, continues to be linked with a move to LaLiga champions Barcelona after another fine season at Atletico.

Italy also received backing from Hungary's right-wing Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who is a friend of Salvini and is known for his fiercely anti-immigrant rhetoric.

The dispute was among the first consequences of political upheaval in Italy, where anti-migrant leaders recently rose to power with a pledge to crack down on new arrivals from the Middle East and Africa.

The UN refugee agency on Monday called on Italy and Malta to immediately allow a boat carrying hundreds of migrants to dock, describing the situation as "an urgent humanitarian imperative". "We can not go to Spain".

But Mathilde Auvillan, the SOS Mediterranee press officer, told HuffPost UK: "We are still waiting for the instructions from the Rome MRCC, which coordinated the rescue and transfer operations".

Even after Spain offered to open its doors on Monday, the incident was not fully resolved, because the Aquarius - with 629 people aboard, including unaccompanied minors, pregnant women and people suffering chemical burns - still faced a grueling multiday journey from near the coast of Malta to the Spanish port of Valencia.
