Emer­gency EU talks on mi­grants be­gin

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Lead­ers from sev­eral Euro­pean coun­tries are hold­ing an emer­gency meet­ing to try to find a com­mon po­si­tion on the mi­grant cri­sis in the Balkans.

A draft state­ment calls on coun­tries to stop wav­ing through mi­grants with­out the agree­ment of their neigh­bours.

Slove­nian PM Miro Cerar warned that the EU would “start fall­ing apart” with­out con­crete ac­tion on the cri­sis.

Ten EU and three non EU states are tak­ing part but the ab­sence of Turkey at the sum­mit has been ques­tioned.

“To­day the dis­cus­sion will be among the coun­tries along the cor­ri­dor of the refugee flows,” said Greek Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras.

“But ev­ery­body knows at the end of the cor­ri­dor there is an en­trance.”
