BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — EU member states still cannot reach consensus on implementing a common migration policy in the bloc to counter the massive refugee crisis, Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel said Monday.
"It is important to have a European solution to this problem. Today everyone decides differently… It seems that there is an anti-migrant damping, each [country] has its own rules," Bettel told reporters upon arriving to the EU-Turkey summit in Brussels.
Europe is struggling to find a solution to a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The EU border agency Frontex detected over 1.83 million illegal border crossings in 2015, in contrast to some 283,000 in 2014.
