(ANSA) - Berlin, July 17 - Austria won't take in any of the 450 migrants that landed in Sicily earlier this week, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told Premier Giuseppe Conte Tuesday according to the APA news agency. "Austria has since 2015 accepted over 150,000 asylum requests and, in relation to the size of its population, has sustained one of the biggest contributions to the EU's migrant policy," he said.
"Many other countries have accepted very few".
Austria, therefore, will not "take part in a further redistribution", Kurz said.
France, Malta, Germany, Spain and Portugal have said they will take of the Pozzallo 50 migrants each while Ireland has said it will take 20.
