epa02684433 A boat of migrants arriving on the island of Lampedusa, southern Italy on 12 April 2011. Reports state that Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini on 12 April 2011 downplayed comments made the day before by Interior Minister Roberto Maroni about Italy leaving the European Union. Maroni had only been expressing 'his strong disappointment' amid a row over migration, Frattini said. Maroni on 11 April 2011 failed to secure any support from his EU counterparts for Italy‘s decision to issue temporary visas to thousands of North African migrants who have landed on its shores, allowing them to travel within the border-free Schengen area.
