Pope says EU states should share responsibility for migrants – Reuters

Pope Francis stated on Sunday (6 November), that member countries of the European Union should accept migrants and not let it be up to them.

He stated that the migration crisis had created new political tensions within Italy. The government and the charity vessels that attempted to disembark migrants have been at odds.

“The European Union should adopt a policy encouraging cooperation and helping. It cannot leave Spain, Greece and Italy with responsibility for all migrants arriving on their shores.

Francis stated that every country within the European Union should determine how many migrants it can accept.


He argued that all countries must agree to a migration policy and added that no policy can be made without consensus.

Matteo Salvini, head of Italy’s antiimmigrant League Party and deputy prime Minister under the new right-wing government is Matteo Salvini. He thanked the pope and his “words o great wisdom”.

Salvini stated that Italy can’t be left alone and must accept all.
