“During the security committee we learned of the Taliban’s capture of Kabul. We focused on the problem of welcoming Afghans who have collaborated with the Italians in Afghanistan”. Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese said this in Palermo. “So far we have welcomed – he added – 228 people. The situation will lead to an acceleration of reception”. “We are in close contact with the foreign and defense ministries to try to give everyone their best in such a delicate situation”, added the minister.

“There will be a further flow of Afghan migrants arriving from the Balkan route but also by sea. I know that UNHCR has given a quantification of the flows in the coming months that could cause us concern, also taking into account the risk of terrorism. We are monitoring and on this we have the a guarantee from all the forces that they will operate in the best possible way “. Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese said this in Palermo. “In Afghanistan it all happened in a very short time. Even going to the airport can be a problem. There are reports from the Taliban that they will not take immediate action until there is joint action by local authorities. This should ensure the departure of the Italians who are there and of those who have cooperated with the armed forces, doctors, interpreters. We will do everything to get them to arrive in Italy safely “. Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese said this in Palermo.
