Merkel says EU must secure external borders
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.
