”As Europe’s leaders, we came together three weeks ago to agree on a concrete list of steps we need to take, and to take urgently. The Commission has lived up to all its commitments.
We have dedicated more money to the refugee crisis – with our amending budget already adopted by both co-legislators. We have sent our experts to Greece and Italy to make the hotspots and relocation scheme function, and pushed all Member States to properly apply the EU’s common asylum rules. We have seen concrete results, but we still need Member States to do more.”, declared the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker.
