Looking towards the South

The Prime Minister’s declaration that he is looking towards the South searching for a solution to the immigration problem is a very valid proposition. Emphasising that Libya should be looked at as being part of the solution is welcome news.

Understandably Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has not put his cards on the table yet, except to announce that he will be meeting with Prime Minister Enrico Letta of Italy on Monday.

Whilst looking forward to a tri-partite solution may I point out that Libya’s signing of the Geneva Convention of 1951 on the status of refugees would be a positive step forward.

One comment on “Looking towards the South

  1. Malta should ALWAYS look to the north and to the south, Italy and Libya. They are our neighbours. Dominic Mintoff always knew and preached this and he acted accordingly, Pity that PN, GonziPN and some other similar racist and ‘snob’ citizens NEVER accepted this situation and always looked only up North. So results are what they are. We could be in a much better position, in all aspects!
