Spain offers to take migrants aboard Open Arms

The Spanish Government has offered to take the 107 migrants presently aboard the Open Arms vessel, at the port of Algeciras.

This decision was taken after the Italian Government refused to admit the migrants to a safe harbour in the country, and the Spanish Government offered to help out in this humanitarian crisis.

The migrants have been stranded on the high seas for 17 days, and still have another week’s voyage ahead of them to get to Algeciras.

Italian Home Affairs Minister Matteo Salvini had to accede, against his will, to the request by Prime Minister Conte and allow minors aboard the vessel to enter Italy.

Salvini replied to the Spanish authorities, telling them that had they not taken too long over the issue, the migrants would already be in Spain and would have been spared all this misery.
