The signing in Rome by Prime Ministers Meloni and Rama of an agreement that foresees the construction of African immigrant camps in Albania arriving in Italy.
The agreement, as reported by the Albanian media, foresees two large camps of total capacity 36,000 people in the northwestern coastal Albanian towns of Lezia and Sengini which will operate next spring.
As the Italian Prime Minister stated, the camps will be under Italian jurisdiction and administration and there will be the registration and further management of the immigrants.
According to APE-MPE, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama justified the signing of the agreement as the fulfillment of Albania’s debt to Italy, which acceptedwith thousands of Albanian immigrants in the great exodus of Albanians after the fall of the communist regime in 1991.
The signing of the agreement was reported by the Italian media and provoked strong reactions in Albania, with the opposition demanding an immediate briefing of Parliament by Prime Minister Edi Rama.
Italy is transferring part of its immigration obligations to Albania and the acceptance on the part of Edi Rama causes very big reactions.
