Hungary’s Viktor Orban praises Italy for turning away rescue ship full of migrants and calls it ‘a great moment for Europe’

Hungary’s anti-immigrant Prime Minister Viktor Orban has praised the decision of the new Italian government to reject a rescue vessel carrying 629 migrants from docking at an Italian port.

The Aquarius, which has more than 130 children and seven pregnant women on board, has been stuck off the coast of Sicily since Saturday, after both Italy and Malta denied them access to their ports.

Orban said his initial reaction to the news was a sigh of ‘Finally!’, calling Italy’s decision to turn away the Aquarius a ‘great moment which may truly bring changes in Europe’s migration policies.’

Italy’s populist parties were finally given the green light to form a coalition government on Thursday evening, after they backed down over their initial selection of a deeply eurosceptic economy minister.

After days of intensive negotiations and pressure from the markets, the anti-immigrant, hard-Right League party and the anti-establishment Five Star Movement agreed to a compromise.

France to boost security on Alps border with Italy after far-Right ‘block’ migrant route

France’s interior minister has pledged to beef up security on the country’s Alpine borders with Italy after a far-Right “commando” blocked access to migrants seeking to cross a key snowy pass, and pro-migrant groups stormed another entry point.

The pledge came hours after France’s National Assembly passed a controversial immigration law that laid bare unprecedented splits in President Emmanuel Macron’s ruling centrist party.

Late Saturday and early Sunday, a group of around 100 activists from the small far-Right group Génération Identitaire – reportedly including Britons – launched a high-profile attempt to shut off the col de l’Echelle, a 1,762m-high pass some six kilometres (almost four miles) from the Italian border.
