Italy, along with France and Germany have agreed to draw up a ‘code of conduct’ for charities operating rescue boats in the Mediterranean with the aim of bringing under control the growing influx of migrants.

Italy’s extreme response to this lack of solidarity should be closing the italian ports to NGO boats except the official UN Missions.
