European Council Directive 2001/55 was developed after the Balkans conflict to give temporary European entry permits to a large number of displaced people

Now some Italian officials say that they may use it to issue visas to migrants

The country is struggling to absorb the numbers seeking refuge on its shores

More than 86,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean to Italy this year

Italian government officials have threatened to issue temporary EU visas to thousands of migrants in an effort to deal with Italy's escalating migrant and refugee crisis that would allow new arrivals to travel north.

In what has been described as a 'nuclear option,' Italian government officials have threatened to allow 200,000 migrants who enter the country to travel across Europe by using a Brussels directive, The Times reports.

Italy has previously called on its EU neighbours to help with the escalating humanitarian crisis but it has been disappointed by their lack of action.
