Italy’s Foreign Minister: Giving Libya patrol boats is the right choice

Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani described the agreement to deliver five ships to Libya, funded by the European Union (EU), as the right option to address the immigration problem, according to Nova news agency.

Nova agency said that Tajani had indicated in a radio statement that “it is right to address the problem of migration according to a European strategy,” adding that Italy needs to invest in Africa against climate change, terrorism, poverty and disease.

Tajani said that his country was in need for joint action at the European level to curb illegal immigration, whether on the Balkan route or the Mediterranean’s.

Tajani’s remarks came in response to European criticism of the gas agreement, which was signed last Saturday between Libyan National Oil Corporation and Italy’s Eni during the visit of a high-level Italian delegation headed by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
