05/07/2005G5 interior ministers agree to joint expulsions

5 July 2005

EVIAN, FRANCE - The first joint expulsion of illegal immigrants from the territories of the so-called G5 countries is just days away, Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said Tuesday in the French resort town of Evian

"It's a matter of days," Pisanu said at a press conference following the two-day meeting of the G5 interior ministers in Evian.

Earlier Tuesday, French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said that he and the other four interior ministers - Pisanu, Charles Clarke of Britain, Jose Antonio Alonso from Spain and Guenther Krause representing German Interior Minister Otto Schily - had agreed to jointly organize flights to expel illegal immigrants from their territories.

"All of us together, the five large European countries, we will organize flights to repatriate illegal immigrants living in Britain, Spain, Germany, France and Italy," Sarkozy told Europe 1 radio.

At the press conference, Sarkozy declared that "only people with papers" will be allowed to enter the five countries. The others, he said, "will be taken back".

On Monday, the five ministers agreed to standardize national laws on the reuniting of immigrant families and to make available to each other equipment necessary to produce and verify biometric visas.

The five also agreed to use on their individual national identity cards biometric elements that will be compatible with those in the four other countries.
