Merkel says EU must se­cure ex­ter­nal borders

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

All EU coun­tries must be pre­pared to send se­cu­rity staff to the bloc’s ex­ter­nal borders, Ger­man Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel has said.

She said it would be un­fair to ask EU coun­tries see­ing the ma­jor­ity of ini­tial mi­grant en­tries to se­cure borders as well.

Mrs Merkel was speak­ing as she ar­rived at an EU lead­ers’ sum­mit in Brus­sels.

The meet­ing aims to se­cure Tur­key’s agree­ment to a plan to halt the flow of refugees try­ing to reach Europe.

Nearly 600,000 mi­grants have reached the EU by sea so far this year.
