15th February 2011, Comments 0 comments

France said Tuesday it would let Tunisian migrants who have fled to Italy after a political uprising in their homeland to seek refuge on French soil only in a few "very marginal" cases.

"France's position is not to reward illegal immigration," European Affairs Minister Laurent Wauquiez told a news conference.

"The interior ministry will examine on a case by case basis those who qualify for the right to immigration. Those cases can only be very marginal," he added.
