Italian Prime Minister 'hostage' EU summit

Italian Prime Minister 'hostage' EU summit

World June 28, 2018 19:36

brussels - The Italian Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte gave the necessary counteraction and consternation Thursday at the EU summit in Brussels. He refuses to sign the conclusions of the leaders about innovations, security policy and the MH17 in the meantime before discussing the subject of migration. That is unusual among government leaders.

Conte wants decisions to be taken at the top that will relieve Italy. Many migrants arrive there, and the rules stipulate that the country of arrival is also the country that must deal with asylum applications. Contes Minister of the Interior, right-wing populist Matteo Salvini, has already refused access to Italian ports to some ships with migrants.

The usual press conference of EU President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Juncker after the first working session has been postponed by Friday's refusal, says Tusk's spokesperson. The discussion on migration is expected to take place well after midnight.
