Malta, Spain to collaborate in the repatriation of illegal migrants

Malta and Spain have agreed to collaborate on issues relating to illegal migration, including repatriation.

In a meeting between Home Affairs Minister Carmelo Mifsud Bonnici and his Spanish counterpart Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba, the two men agreed that the implementation of the Immigration and Asylum Pact was a priority.

They agreed to do their utmost so that matters relating to illegal migration in the Mediterranean would continue to be given importance on the EU agenda during the Czech and Swedish presidencies next year.

The two countries agreed that a group of Spanish police should be sent to Malta next year to help the Maltese force with repatriation.
