Greece, Malta agree new EU Migration Pact no prerequisite for action

Greece’s Migration and Asylum minister, Notis Mitarakis, and Malta’s Interior Minister, Byron Camilleri,have agreed that the new European Migration and Asylum Pact which is under negotiation is not a prerequisite for action regarding external relations, border protection and returns.

The two ministers met in Valletta on the sidelines of the anniversary conference for the completion of 10 years of EASO.

Mitarakis and Camilleri discussed the common challenges the two countries face in managing migration as front-line countries and shared the common belief regarding the new EU Migration Pact.

The two ministers underlined the need for effective border protection but also for the establishment of a system of solidarity as a prerequisite for a resilient and fair common European migration and asylum policy.

The Minister of Interior also stressed the need to strengthen cooperation with the Libyan authorities, as most of the flows come from this country.
