MILAN (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said on Sunday he was “decidedly satisfied” with the meeting in Brussels on Sunday with other European Union leaders on the issue of migration.

“We have steered the debate that is under way in the right direction,” Conte said in a Tweet.

Italy presented a document at the meeting calling on, among other things, European Union countries to accept their share of economic migrants entering the bloc, or get less EU money.
