UN Migration Pact: Italy will not endorse the Pact in December

Apparently taking an example at the way the Swiss Government has handled the issue, Italy’s Government decided that it will not endorse the Pact in December in Marrakesh.

However, just as the Swiss Government did, the Italian Government also says that it will allow the Italian Parliament to make the final decision (and possibly endorse the Pact at a later time point).

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said:

The Global Migration Compact is a document that raises issues and questions that many citizens have strong feelings about

Therefore, we consider it right to put the debate in parliament and subject any final decision on the outcome of that debate, as Switzerland has done.

So the government will not participate in Marrakesh, reserving the option to adopt the document, or not, only when parliament has expressed its opinion
