Joint press conference by Angelino Alfano, Italian Minister for the Interior, and Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC, on migration in the Mediterranean

Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, and Angelino Alfano, Italian Minister for the Interior and President in office of the Council of the EU, gave a joint press conference on migration in the Mediterranean. Cecilia Malmström thanked the Minister and the Italian government for the immense work they had done under the "Mare Nostrum" operation. The country had contributed to saving more than hundred thousand people under very difficult conditions and this was something that needed to be acknowledged by the whole world.
Cecilia Malmström and Angelino Alfano discussed the future of "Mare Nostrum" and how to manage migration in the Mediterranean. The "Mare Nostrum" operation was a response to the terrible event in Lampedusa, in October 2013. It was created as an emergency operation but it was not an effort that Italy could carry out all alone. The EC would do its utmost to make sure that the whole European Union, that all the Member States, would play an increased role in helping Italy to manage the migration issue in the Mediterranean.
The EC and the country were working together intensely on a new operation of the European Agency for the Management of Operational Cooperation at the External Borders of the EU (Frontex), which aimed to increase the assistance to Italy. It was therefore decided that the two ongoing Frontex operations "Hermes" and "Aeneas" would be merged and extended into a new upgraded operation.
