    The EU will present a new plan focusing on tackling the core reasons of the global migration crisis.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The European Union will present a new external investment plan focusing on tackling the core reasons of the global migration crisis next week, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday.

    "We will present next week very ambitious and innovative external investment plan to tackle causes of the deep crisis of migration in a sense of partnership, acknowledging the fact that it is not a European problem, [but] this is a global phenomenon," Mogherini said, addressing the EU Ambassadors' conference.

    Europe has been suffering severe migration crisis due to current Syrian civil war.
