Mattarella on migrants and peace in Ukraine at the Med Dialogues 2022


Speaking also of the consequences of the war, the head of state underlines that it is urgent to find shared solutions, because multilateralism offers solutions to the storm

The management of migratory flows is a decisive and global issue, and national and international diplomacies and organizations, starting with the EU, are called to a common commitment. President Mattarella underlined this at the eighth edition of the Rome Med Conference: “It is a crucial question for the stability and prosperity of the EU and of our southern neighbourhood”. Speaking also of the consequences of the war, the head of state stresses that it is urgent to find shared solutions, because multilateralism offers solutions to the storm.

“Are we at the crossroads war or peace for progress?”

“Once again we are at a crossroads. What allows us to look at the progress of humanity? War or peace? We must start from those principles which form the basis of our civil coexistence and are founded within the framework of the United Nations. To consolidate the system multilateral and make it more democratic, it is necessary to refer to equality between states, avoiding polarization at the international level and an exasperation of diversity, which certainly exists, which effective dialogue can help reduce”, he said.

“The conflict in Europe has also generated a food supply crisis that afflicts the countries of the southern shore and which, while forcing urgent solutions to be identified, pushes us together to continue on the path of promoting sustainable agro-food systems”. “It is a global challenge which, in the enlarged Mediterranean area, risks accentuating already existing problems and spreading instability and insecurity”. “Concrete steps are needed,” she continued.
