Informal working meeting on migration and asylum issues

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that leaders around the table during the mini-European summit on migration, need to keep an open mind and avoid blame games.

Speaking at the start of the Informal Meeting on Migration and Asylum Issues convened by the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, the Prime Minister said: “The situation is precarious and we are experiencing it first-hand in the Mediterranean. It is not the time for finger pointing. People are looking at us and we need to offer some concrete solutions. We will make some proposals in the hope that everyone will be willing to listen,” said the Prime Minister.

He added that there isn’t one solution and that Europe needs a multi-faceted approach to migration.
