Press conference by Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on the follow up of the tragedy in Lampedusa
Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a press conference on the follow up of the Lampedusa tragedy. The tragedy in Lampedusa, one of the many Europe witnessed in recent years, prompted an unprecedented call for action by EU leaders and citizens. Today the Commission is proposing ways to increase solidarity and mutual support in order to prevent migrants' death in the Mediterranean.
Actions proposed are the result of the work carried out by the Commission chaired Task-Force for the Mediterranean, with the aim to bolster EU's policies and tools in the short to medium term.
