The Mayor of Dolomites, Sindi Manushi, on the refugee camp in Shengjin: arrogant Italy. With a strong country, he would not have dared
Sindi Manushi, the Albanian immigrant who went to Italy at the age of 9 and today is the mayor of Dolomite, spoke to the Italian media about the Albania-Italy agreement. Although closely related to Albania and Italy, she unreservedly expresses her opinion regarding this agreement, which she considers useless.
"From a practical point of view, it won't solve anything. The two structures will be in Albania so for us here in Italy they will not be useful. Immigrants will continue to arrive and we mayors will continue to be in trouble", says Sindi.
"I don't think Italy would have ever allowed itself to ask something like that from any country in the Western bloc. Would he have ever had the courage to ask for a piece of land and sovereignty, for example, from Germany?"
"The position of Tirana is also debatable, perhaps it requires bonuses to join the EU," she says.
Sind also talks about the financial costs, but also about the conflict of jurisdiction.
"We have emigrated to Albania and we continue to emigrate. The flow of Albanians escaping from Albania has not ended over the years. Thus, we find ourselves in the paradox that we expect to receive immigrants in a country that does not even manage for its own citizens", adds Sindi.
The mayor calls this agreement an adventure.
