  • The #SalzburgSummit18 is not business as usual. Too much is at stake. We expect the Austrian Presidency to actively promote a humanitarian refugee policy. Europe's answer can only be solidarity, not building a fortress Europe.

  • Dieser Gipfel ist kein „business as usual“, dafür steht zu viel auf dem Spiel. Wir erwarten von der Ratspräsidentschaft, dass sie sich aktiv für eine humanitäre Flüchtlingspolitik einsetzt. Europas Antwort kann nur Solidarität sein, nicht Abschottung. #SalzburgSummit18 https://t.co/S7SJ1saU0C

  • We finally need a collaborative approach to coordinate search and rescue operations for capsized and stray refugee vessels in the Mediterranean. Ad hoc solutions, in which individual Member States only show solidarity case by case, will not work in the long term.
