Immigration was at the heart of the discussions yesterday in Malta. Two important topics were dealt with between the European Union and Africa, as well as EU and Turkey.
During two days, fifty African and European leaders came together to speak about the illegal immigration. 1.8 billion euros were offered in emergency by the European Union. The objective is to clarify legal human flow between Africa and Europe.
Two decisions were adopted:
– Doubling of benefits for African students and scientists.
– Collaboration between immigration African officer and Europe.
The European Union decided to offer 3.4 billion euros in Turkey for its help to slow down the flow of migrants to Europe. The situation is complicated for EU. Thousands of refugees want to enter while everyone cannot be accepted. The main idea is to keep the migrants in Turkey.
A summit is expected to be quickly organized between the European countries and Turkey.
