RefugeeThe European Union home affairs ministers held an emergency meeting on migrant crisis on September 14 which ended with divisions over response to migrant crisis.

Dimitris Avramopoulos, the EU’s Migration Commissioner announced after Brussels’ meeting that all of the ministers did not agree on the proposal

“But for our proposal on 120,000 we did not have the agreement that we wanted. The majority of the member states are ready to move on, but not all,” he said.

Hungary and Slovakia are leading the leading oppositions with Budapest saying that the entire system is wrong that will attract more people.

Euronews quotes its reporter as saying that: “From the closing remarks of the meeting it’s clear that the leaders made some concessions towards the hardline politicians in Europe. In the future for example the asylum requests might be judged outside of the EU, and they will also strengthen the border protection at the EU’s external borders.”
