Italy's new Integration Minister Cecile Kyenge said Wednesday that the country is "changing its approach" to immigration.
Kyenge, Italy's first black minister, said the country is on the path towards greater protection of the rights of children born to immigrant parents.
Prime Minister Enrico Letta's decision to create an integration ministry is in itself a "sign of fundamental change."
"The idea is to bring attention back to people and their rights," the Italian Congolese-born minister told a press conference with foreign journalists.
