    ROME - Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio on Wednesday told Sky News that ''the problem of migrants can't be solved by redistributing them in other European countries but rather by stopping departures''. Speaking from New York, Di Maio said that ''for this, we are engaged in various talks on Libya's stability, to stop the conflict and to avoid that the country further becomes a migration route towards Italy''.
    The foreign minister also said he was ''happy'' about the agreement reached Monday in Malta on sharing the burden of the migrants who arrive by sea from North Africa ''but I don't want to emphasize it''.
