Germany’s foreign minister on Tuesday said Italy’s deal with Libya to create migrant camps in the crisis-torn country would not help curb migration into Europe.
Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel delivered his statement during a visit to the African Union headquarters in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
“The camps existing on ground already show horrible and catastrophic conditions,” Gabriel said. “The idea to set up camps in a country like Libya would be in utter disregard to the living circumstances of the people on ground.”
