Italy should prepare a code of conduct for NGO ships carrying out search and rescue operations in the central Mediterranean, the European Commission said in its action plan to ease migratory pressure on Italy. The plan should be drafted in consultation with the EC, and on the basis of dialogue with the NGOs, it said.
Italy has said it will instruct NGO rescue ships not to enter Libyan territorial waters. It has also mooted barring non-Italian NGO ships from Italian ports, a threat that will be a key issue at an informal meeting of EU interior ministers in Tallinn on Thursday and Friday.
France and Spain have already said they will not open their ports to such ships.
EU member States should also mobilize to support migrant repatriations from Italy, the EC said in its action plan Tuesday. They should also: contribute more to the Fund for Africa, to complete a 2.6-billion-euro contribution; accelerate relocation from Italy; and press ahead with reforming the Dublin regulation. The EC vowed to support the “organisation of a centre of coordination for sea rescues fully operational in Libya”. It also urged Tunisia and Libya to name respective areas of search and rescue (SAR) for migrants and set up an official coordinating office for sea rescues. The two countries have never set up their SAR areas, which serve to map out the areas of sea they are competent for.
So they will draw up Plans of Conduct for NGO’s. When have they ever followed rules or regulations. This is another little plan of a half hearted attempt to appear like they are doing something. The truth is nothing is being done because there can only be one answer; a total closure of the borders. This would send a message that any attempts to go to Europe are fruitless. This would also save lives that the Marxist always champion. Fake refugees would no longer taking chances to cross on unsafe boats nor deal in the black market with smugglers. Or is the truth that the Globalist view it as an invasion or a war. One in which sacrifices are made. So what if 5% do not make, a 95% success rate is worth it. After all the goal is European Genocide.
