Malta and Italy still at loggerheads

Maltese and Italy are still quibbling over the immigrant issue, accusing each other of not committing to the pre-agreed redistribution mechanism.

The Maltese government is lamenting that the Italian authorities have been contacted, however the Italians have not provided any plan of action.

The Maltese authorities are also complaining that their Italian counterparts have still to fulfil their commitment on the matter of the immigrants that disembarked from the MV Lifeline on the 27th June.
