Malta refuses to accept vessel carrying 629 migrants after Italy’s rejection

Italy turns away a rescue boat carrying 600 migrants including 123 children and seven pregnant women

Italy 'to shut ports' to boat carrying over 600 refugees

"Malta will be sending fresh supplies to the vessel", Muscat said.

The Aquarius carrying would be immigrants arrives in the port of Catania, on the island of Sicily on March 21, 2017 after a rescue operation in the Mediterranean sea, where some 946 would be immigrants were rescued.

Some 629 people, including pregnant women and scores of children, were saved by SOS Mediterranean on Saturday and are stuck aboard the French NGO's ship Aquarius, which is now between Malta and Sicily waiting for a secure port.

Italy's position, Muscat said, risks "creating a unsafe situation for all those involved".

"The boat is now heading north towards a secure port", SOS Mediterranee tweeted without specifying its destination, though virtually every such migrant boat over the past five years ended up in Italy.

"Broader issues such as who has responsibility and how these responsibilities can best be shared between states should be looked at later", UNHCR special envoy Vincent Cochetel said.

Malta has accused Italy of violating global norms by instructing a migrant rescue ship with 629 people aboard to stay at sea while a diplomatic standoff plays out over where it can dock.

The migrants were rescued in an operation coordinated by Rome Rescue Coordination Centre (RCC) within Libyan territorial waters, in an area that is closer to Tunis and Lampedusa than it is to Malta.

Stanishev commanded the progressive mayors of south of Italy coastal cities for their expressed willingness to disobey inhumane instructions from Italy's new leaders.

Migrants are rescued by staff members of the MV Aquarius, a search and rescue ship run in partnership between SOS Mediterranee and Medecins Sans Frontieres in the central Mediterranean Sea, June 10, 2018.

In response, Canada, Mexico and the European Union said they were putting in place their own retaliatory measures. She said: "The withdrawal, so to speak, via tweet is of course sobering and a bit depressing ".

"It's common sense. We ask that all of Europe assume responsibility for such a delicate and important issue as is immigration", he said in a TV interview.

Left-wing mayor Luigi De Magistris said he would welcome in the humanitarian boat and added: "Naples is ready, without funds, to save lives".

The European Commission urged action.

"We call on all involved to contribute to a swift resolution so that the people on board the Aquarius vessel may be safely disembarked as soon as possible".

But Muscat, "while comprehending the situation", rebuffed him, Conte said in a Facebook post late Sunday.

Among those on board are 400 migrants rescued by the Italian navy and merchant vessels before being transferred to the Aquarius.

Malta's Prime Minister Joseph Muscat welcomed Sanchez's move, which he said was pre-empted by Italy breaking worldwide rules and causing a standoff.

Italy's new interior minister Matteo Salvini has called on Malta to open its border.

Last week, Salvini said Rome should increase its deportations of migrants.

Farther west in the Mediterranean, Spain's maritime rescue service saved 334 migrants and recovered four bodies from boats it intercepted trying to reach Europe over the weekend.
