In the article "European solidarity does not exist" for the Italian Cybernaua.it magazine, our Advisory Board member Brigadier General Giuseppe Morabito analyzes the current state of migration from an Italian point of view together with Ermete Del Buon.
They explain the developments around the most recent major attempts of migrants to illegally cross the Mediterranean, where NGO's claimed - wrongly - that rescue requests were rejected by the Libyan Navy. This increase in departures can be attributed to the presence of NGO ships in the area.
Giuseppe and Ermete outline briefly the Italian military mission to assist and support the GNA and conclude, that it is time for the European Union to start thinking concretely about how to solve the problem of illegal migrants in the Mediterranean without leaving Italy and Malta alone.
