Maroni: Migration Agreement with Libya is a Success

During an interview yesterday, Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni again described the bi-lateral migration agreement between Italy and Libya as effective saying that 850 migrants were successfully intercepted and returned last year.  He contrasted the 850 intercepted migrants with the 37,000 migrants who reached Italian shores in the previous year.  He said that the thousands of would be migrants who have been prevented from reaching Italy have been stopped by Libyan authorities in Libya.  He described this as the “fruit of the cooperation agreement with Libya.” (E’ il frutto dell’accordo di cooperazione fra Italia e Libia.”)
