 Subject: The need for an intervention to manage the refugee crisis

With the Syrian crisis getting increasingly worse and new hostilities beginning, the so-called Balkan route could be the scene of new migration flows. The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has threatened to renounce the agreement reached between the EU and Turkey in March 2016, which could result in Europe’s doors being thrown open to 3.6 million refugees and asylum seekers. In such a scenario, refugees passing through Greece and non-EU and non-Schengen countries would access EU territories by using the Croatian border with Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, before heading towards Hungary, Slovenia and Italy.

In the light of the foregoing:

Does the Commission intend to take concrete action to protect external borders in order to prevent a new refugee crisis emerging through the Balkan route?

Does it plan to intensify cooperation with non-EU countries (in particular North Macedonia, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina) in order to coordinate efforts on joint territorial controls?

Does it intend to equip Member States with the same technological tools available under the EU Civil Protection Mechanism for the purposes of monitoring and controlling migration flows?
