    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, FEBRUARY 20 - The seven nations of the Mediterranean Group have called firmly for the European Union to commit greater efforts to the issue of migration, said Italy's foreign minister, Paolo Gentiloni, in Paris at the end of a meeting with his counterparts from France, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Malta and Cyprus. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini also took part in the meeting. ''Yesterday, on the issue of migration,'' Gentiloni continued, ''there was an initial urgent response to the Italian government on bolstering of Operation Triton. However, we are all aware that the response was timely but only a first step.'' (ANSAmed).
