“The country needed to show good will”

During a telephone interview on the party station, Muscat was questioned about the immigrants who are expected to enter Malta today after being saved from Sea-Eye’s ship Alan Kurdi. Muscat said that it was common sense that the country needed to show good will especially since the immigrants will not stay in Malta. He said that Government discussed with the German Government so that the immigrants are brought to Malta and then distributed along different member states.
