EU Commission: “Europe cannot fail twice on migration”

Vice-President European Commission, Margaritis Schinas, recently called on European Union Member States to avoid repeating the mistakes related to the handling of the influx of migrants to Europe in 2015. 

“Europe cannot fail twice on migration,” Schinas said at a press conference at the end of a meeting of ministers from 18 EU and Western Balkan nations.

He added that the past influx had caused significant political rifts within the European Union.
