Pedro Sanchez: Rescue Vessel and Mediterranean Sea
pedro sanchez: Malta refused on Sunday, according to The Chronicle Herald. Spain's new Socialist prime minister, Pedro Sanchez stepped in Monday, ordering authorities in Valencia to prepare for the ship's arrival. The Aquarius, a rescue vessel operated by aid group SOS Mediterranee, has been stuck in the Mediterranean Sea since Saturday, when Italy refused its crew permission to dock and demanded that Malta do so. It's our duty to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe and offer a secure port for these people, Sanchez said. One of the coalition partners in the populist government that took over in Italy on June 1, the right-wing League, promised voters other European Union countries would be made to share the burden of caring for asylum-seekers who set out for Europe on unseaworthy smugglers' boats. Both the ship and its passengers were caught up in a political dispute that might not have happened weeks ago. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
