How do you say ”get bent” in Danish..?
Turn the ship around and head it back to N.Africa. The Australians did that years ago and with good results. Time to end these asinine international agreements on asylum and refugees, clearly new understandings must be taken into consideration due to the past few years. Enough already. What’s really unreasonable is for taxpayers to fund their eventual demise as hordes of 3rd world migrants run rampant throughout their countries, reducing their quality of living to that of the countries from which these migrants come from.
Italy’s refusal of Maersk migrants ‘unreasonable’: Denmark’s immigration minister
Danish minister for immigration Inger Støjberg says that Italy must accept migrants rescued by shipping company Maersk.
The Italian government has refused to accept migrants rescued from the Mediterranean Sea but reportedly asked a ship belonging to Danish freight company Maersk to rescue 113 people on Saturday.
“It is unreasonable towards Maersk to put them in a situation in which they have a ship full of migrants, not least migrants whom they have been asked to help by the authorities, and this is therefore a question in which the Italians certainly should allow them to be brought to an Italian harbour,” she said.
The Alexander Maersk rescued 113 people on Saturday. Five were subsequently brought to land at the request of the Italian coastguard, Ritzau reports.
But the ship has not been granted permission to dock in Italy and therefore has nowhere to take the rescued migrants.
Denmark’s prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen has previously stated that Italy must comply with its international obligations.
