UN Migration Pact: Switzerland won’t sign it in December

The Swiss government has decided it won’t attend an international conference in Marrakesh next month to sign a United Nations-backed agreement on migration.

It said it wanted to wait for parliamentary debates on the issue during the forthcoming winter session before giving the migration pact its final blessing, according to a statement published on Wednesday.

However, the government maintains that the agreement is consistent with Switzerland’s interests. So, they’ll be happy to sign at a later time point, assuming the parliament agrees to it.
