SPAIN’S government is willing to strike agreements with African countries that would see migrant children from those states returned provided their rights were protected, the Interior Minister said.

Fernando Grande-Marlaska said there may be times when a child who had come to Spain alone should be return to their home country. He was speaking during a visit to the Canary Islands.

Spain is considering striking deals with countries including Morocco that would allow for the transfer of children who arrive alone or irregularly, Grande-Marlaska said.
