Italy defends migration control agreement with Libya amidst renewed criticism

The Italian foreign minister, Guilio Terzi, has defended the migration control agreement signed between his country and Libya last April, amidst renewed criticism from rights group Amnesty International.

On Wednesday, Amnesty called on the Italian government to “sink” the agreement, in which the Italian authorities are working with their counterparts in Tripoli to stem refugee flows from Libya, claiming “migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers risk serious human rights abuses there”.
