"We must deal with this phenomenon of the refugees and especially migration very cautiously because it is a trend, not just phenomenon. The xenophobic rhetoric is not the best way to deal with it. I think it is important in order to solve the problem to have a dialogue with the countries [of origin] that issue the migrants in order to find the solutions on the place," Pedro Roque said on the sidelines of the Development of Parliamentarism international forum in Moscow.
Europe has been experiencing an acute migration crisis in recent years due to the influx of thousands of migrants and refugees fleeing violence from their homes in the Middle East and North Africa. Hundreds of thousands of migrants are trying to reach Europe using various routes, mostly through the Mediterranean Sea.
