Italy Wants To Grant Temporary Visas of the European Union To 200000 African Migrants (Photos)  

More than 200,000 migrants in Italy could soon receive temporary visas from the European Union, enabling them to travel to Europe without any problems.

This decision, which has been described as a “nuclear option”, is welcomed by some authorities who believe that the country already has enough problems with refugees.

This means that newcomers to Italy could travel to Europe using the Brussels Directive.

Mario Giro, Deputy Foreign Minister, said he believes the country can exploit Directive 2001/55 of the European Council to grant temporary visas to a large number of people.

The Times describes Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni as “furious” at the refusal of European partners to welcome other migrants. And this “recipe” to try to put an end to the arrivals had already been suggested a few days ago by the former Minister of Foreign Affairs Emma Bonino (…)

With this gesture, Italy can issue temporary visas ” in compliance with the Schengen rules which provide in all cases exceptions for humanitarian reasons, ” said Bonino. Now the duel is launched between Rome and Brussels.
