BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she wanted to support Italy in its efforts to reduce the number of migrants arriving on its shores, possibly handling asylum requests for Europe in non-European countries including Libya. Most migrants attempting to reach Europe from Africa take the sea route from Libya to Italy, one of the countries receiving a lot of refugees as a first arrival country. Merkel will be in talks with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and other European leaders in coming weeks on the question of how the European Union could enable a stable government in Libya.
