Italy’s PM seeks EU Nations’ Help with Refugees

Italy’s premier says that unless other EU countries assume some of the migrant crisis burden, the huge numbers could feed hostility in Italian society.

 

Premier Paolo Gentiloni in a speech Monday at a Rome-based U.N. food agency noted that “Italy has mobilized to deal with the flows of migrants” rescued in the central Mediterranean from smugglers’ boats and brought to Italian shores.

 

Gentiloni said Europe must help if it “wants to stay faithful to its own principles, own history, own civilization.”

 

Some 83,000 migrants have arrived in Italy so far this year.
