Prime Minister Joseph Muscat explained that despite the preliminary agreement reached in the EU Summit, a long-term solution regarding immigration remains to be done.

A statement from the office of the Prime Minister explained how after long hours of discussions with European leaders, they managed to agree on significant findings which represent another important step in the migration challenge.

The 28 Member States in the European Council declared that all vessels must comply with applicable laws and instructions of the competent authorities.

In the statement, it was argued that this was not the case in the Lifeline situation.
