EU Leaders Try to Tackle the Migration Crisis

Reuters

The leaders of the 28 EU countries are holding a summit in the Austrian city of Salzburg to tackle migration once again, an issue that has badly damaged their unity in recent years, Euronews reported.

Right before chairing the talks, EU Council President Donald Tusk said progress had been made since Mediterranean arrivals peaked in 2015. He informed that fewer than 100,000 migrants had reached Europe without necessary documentation this year.

"I will call all leaders to stop the migration blame game. Despite aggressive rhetoric, things are moving in the right direction. Mostly because we have been focused on external border control." Donald Tusk mentioned.

The leaders are to discuss a proposal to raise the number of guards at the EU’s border agency to 10,000.

Despite a steep drop in immigration numbers since 2015, political aftershocks are still reverberating with member states at loggerheads over how to distribute new arrivals and share the burden of integrating migrants already in the EU.
