France: Macron calls for sanctions against EU states refusing migrants

French President Emmanuel Macron said he was favourable towards sanctions against EU countries who refuse to accept migrants, during a joint press conference alongside Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Saturday. «We cannot have countries that massively benefit from EU solidarity and who massively claim their national selfishness when it comes to the topic of... Еще migration,» the French President said. Europe was not facing a migrant crisis as large as it was in 2015, Macron added. «Even a country like Italy does not have the same migrant pressure like it had last year. Because through European cooperation and cooperation with Libya, we have reduced these migratory flows by around 80 percent.» Spanish Prime Minister Sanchez called on a «common» migratory policy, adding that «we have to reinforce bilateral cooperation with the countries of origin and with the countries of transit.»
