Not only does it say no to the entry of migrants from Italy, now the France he also decides to deploy a helicopter at the border to ensure that no one is let through. A way to prevent any passage into the country. The vehicle, according to what has been learned fromHandleapparently belongs to the Transalpine Customs and flew over, in the morning, the area between the Italian-French border of Ponte San Ludovico and the one upstream, of San Luigi, in Ventimiglia where anti-terrorism vehicles have been deployed.
In addition to ground monitoring, therefore, monitoring from above would serve to carry out more precise checks on any movements of migrants. The first affront to Italy came yesterday, when the French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin he said: “France will not take any migrants from Lampedusa.” A strong and clear message arrived the day after the visit of Ursula von der Leyen and Giorgia Meloni to the island off the coast of Sicily.
Darmanin justified his no by saying: “It would be a error of judgment consider that migrants, since they arrive in Europe, must be immediately distributed throughout Europe and to France, which largely does its part”. Words which immediately triggered the Italian reaction. “Italians deserve concrete facts from France and from Europe”, thundered the League. The only thing on which Paris seems to want to collaborate, together with Berlin, is greater air and naval control of the external borders. In this regard, the European Union has underlined that it is “available to explore the ‘hypothesis”, even if the “decision is up to the States”.
