Italy can't take on all migrants, Conte tells Tusk (4)

Rome, June 20 - Premier Giuseppe Conte told European
Council President Donald Tusk on Wednesday that it was
"unthinkable" for Italy to also have to take migrants that have
made secondary movements, given that it is widely recognised as
being the country most exposed to migrant flows.
Conte and Tusk had talks for around two hours at the
premier's office in Rome.
Secondary movement regards moves from the country in which a
migrant first arrived.
According to the Dublin Regulation, if an asylum seeker whose
request has not been completed leaves the first country they
arrived in and go to another EU member State, the latter can
relocate them back in the country where they landed.
During the talks, Conte said Italy was unwilling to accept
the "second reception" of asylum seekers in this way, sources
said.
This will be the position Italy expounds at Sunday's informal
meeting of the leaders of eight EU countries, including Germany
and France, ahead of next week's European Council summit, the
sources said.
"Today I had very useful meeting with President Tusk," Conte
said via Twitter.
"I told him in advance that I am not willing to discuss
secondary movements at the Brussels pre-summit without first
having addressed the emergency of the primary movements that
Italy is tackling alone".
