Italy: G6 countries discuss illegal migrationduring two day summit in Rome

A two-day meeting of the so-called G6, an unofficial group of the Interior Ministers of the six European Union member states, kicked off in Rome on Friday.
Interior ministers of EU's six largest countries - Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, and Poland - are scheduled to discuss illegal migration and the joint fight against international terrorism and organised crime.
Ahead of the meeting, European Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos, stated that "it's not up to migrants to decide where they want to go, it is up to Europe." "Europe has opened its doors but everybody should respect the laws of Europe," he added.
Addressing participants of the meeting, Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano, stated that "separating those who use weapons from those who pray ... is no longer enough." He continued: "We must ask those who pray to become a proactive [force] in our prevention strategy to be used as a vaccine against the virus of violent radicalism."
Moreover, Alfano stressed that if the European Union is able to solve the deportation issue of the illegal migrants, "Europe will finally win the challenge."
