The Czech prime minister, Andrej Babiš, says he will offer Italy and Malta unmanned aircraft to help guard their borders and combat illegal migration when he visits the two states in a fortnight’s time. Mr. Babiš made the comment on Tuesday after visiting a Czech company that develops such aircraft.
The Czech leader agreed a month ago to visit Rome after his Italian counterpart, Giuseppe Conte, sent an open letter in response to Mr. Babiš’s refusal of an Italian request to take in 450 migrants.
The latter says Europe must send a signal that illegal migration is unacceptable and taking in more people only makes the problem worse.
