Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has called for global efforts and coordinated action to address migration challenge.
At a press conference after G20 summit in Hamburg in Germany on Saturday, Gentiloni said Italy’s effort on immigration “can not be unlimited”, Xinhua news agency reported.
He admitted the views are divided on immigration issues between Italy and its neighbours like France, adding that he does not expect sudden conversions in that regard.
Though Italy has made important efforts, for instance, performed international search and marine rescue operations, “this effort can not be unlimited, it can not be done only by us”, Gentiloni said.
The Italian Prime Minister also regarded the outcomes of the G20 summit as “acceptable results”, underlying that G20 stands against protectionism and incorrect behaviours in trade, while granting legitimate trade defence instruments to individual countries.
The two-day G20 Hamburg summit began on Friday with discussions on terrorism, global economic growth, trade and climate change and migration.
