Monti: Italy hardly prepared to handle high influx of immigrants - The Africa News


Italian government is often not ready to handle a high influx of immigrants, Prime Minister Mario Monti has said.

Reacting to reports that there could be an increase in the number of refugees coming to Europe due to the conflict in Syria, Mr. Monti said none should think that a miracle will happen to stop the people arriving from the southern Mediterranean.

Immigrants should not be viewed as enemies but as possible and immediate allies, Mr. Monti said.
