Migrant crisis: Ministers from the EU and Balkan countries to meet in Brussels

  • In an attempt to heal divisions over a migrant crisis that has the potential to threaten EU’s survival, ministers from EU and the Balkan countries will be gathering in Brussels. According to media reports, Serbia, Austria and Macedonia have taken measures to restrict migrant’s entry. This has angered Greece, which fears that the controls will lead to a bottleneck. The rift places further strain on the common EU migration policy, which is already in disarray due to the increase in migration.
