Rome (AP) - The designated EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has promised Italy discharge in migration. "I propose a new migration pact (...) and a fresh new start for migration," said von der Leyen at a meeting with Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. The distribution of refugees within the EU requires "a new way of burden sharing". Italy, Spain and Greece are particularly exposed to the problem because of their geographical location.
