Landen als Italië en Griekenland die een toestroom van asielzoekers krijgen, moeten meer steun van andere EU-lidstaten ontvangen, zeiden EP-leden bij een delegatiebezoek aan Sicilië (22-24 juli). "Italië besteedt ruim € 1 miljard per jaar om te zorgen voor zij die de oversteek over de Middellandse Zee halen. De grenzen van Italië zijn de grenzen van de EU: een beter beheer van de migratiestromen is onze gezamenlijke verantwoordelijkheid," zei Jean Arthuis (ALDE), medevoorzitter van de delegatie.
