Interior ministers from France, Germany and Italy will work together to solve Italy's migrant crisis

Interior ministers from France, Germany and Italy together with the European Union’s migration commissioner met in Paris over the weekend to talk about Italy’s migrant crisis. Further discussions are expected to take place later this week during EU talks in Tallinn this week.

Italy had threatened to block NGO ships that have been transporting what is says is the “unsustainable” flow of people to its shores.

Some 1.7 refugees and migrants have reached EU shores since 2014, reported Reuters. Italy has admitted 500,000 during that period. The numbers are growing.

The EU want other member states to allow the boats transporting the migrants across the Med to dock in their ports to alleviate growing pressure on Rome.
