Speaking about immigration, Dr Muscat said that this issue should not only be considered from one dimension.  He said that there is a difference between those who are genuinely seeking asylum and those illegal immigrants who are economic migrants. The PM also mentioned how immigration from the Central Mediterranean went down by 78% last year, thanks to the intervention of the EU.
