innsbruck - The German minister Horst Seehofer from the Interior hopes to conclude an agreement with Italy on the return of migrants at the end of July or the beginning of August. That intention was expressed by both countries, Seehofer said after meeting with his Italian colleague Matteo Salvini in Innsbruck.
Discussions will also continue on the assistance to migrants at sea. 'That is also a legitimate concern of Italy', according to the German minister. After the meeting, Salvini made it clear that Italy does not take back any migrant if the European Union does not secure its outer borders.
Seehofer, who in his own country brought migration problems to a head, spoke of a good atmosphere during the conversation. 'The spirit of today was very solution-oriented, but between a good start and a real solution at the end there are usually still difficult discussions. '
