Laitinen in Malta for Discussions

Frontex Director Ilkka Laitinen is in Malta today for discussions with Maltese officials about the situation in Libya and the possibility of a new migrant flow from Libya.  It seems that the discussions concern the expansion of Joint Operation Hermes Extension or the creation of a new joint operation based in Malta.  Before leaving Brussels earlier today, Laitinen said that “although the situation is fluid and until now no flows of asylum seekers to Europe has resulted, Frontex was preparing for such an eventuality.”
