The Italian government again demanded on Wednesday that the redistribution of refugees and migrants to the European Union member states proceed.

Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgeze discussed the issue with European Home Affairs Commissioner Ilva Jansson, her services said.

During the talks, he outlined the current situation in Italy and called for an emergency council of internal affairs to be set up to discuss the issue.

Hundreds of migrants and refugees have arrived in the island of Lampedusa and other parts of Italy every day in recent weeks. They depart mainly from the coasts of Tunisia and Libya, to reach Europe by crossing the central Mediterranean. Their most frequent destination is Italy.

As of yesterday, the Italian Ministry of the Interior had recorded more than 30.200 arrivals of migrants by sea this year, compared to about 14.800 in the corresponding period of 2020.

At least three non-governmental organizations have deployed ships conducting search and rescue operations in the central Mediterranean.

However, in the request made by Italy for the ninth time, its partners in the EU discount that they will be deaf. Due to fundamentally different views on tackling the migration and refugee crisis and the mechanism for redeploying people arriving in Europe, negotiations on immigration and asylum reform in the EU have been at a dead end for months.

Brussels also often argues that Germany and France receive much more applications for asylum from Italy on a monthly basis.

According to the UN, some 1.000 migrants and refugees have lost their lives in the Mediterranean, mainly on its main sea route, so far by 2021.
