PM: Malta acted according to international law

Wednesday, 07 Aug 2013, 13:19

 

Addressing a press conference about the MT Salamis affair this morning, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that Malta had followed its international obligations.

When asked if there might be some negative impacts on Malta he replied: "Absolutely not, because we have moved with international law so that at no time did the European Union tell us that we had broken any international law. "

Stressing that this was a matter of principle, the Prime Minister said"The government has a strong and legitimate position".

He said that the message sent yesterday was that while Malta honored its international obligations it would not be treated like a carpet by anyone.
