Fine states that turn back migrants: Macron

Fine states that turn back migrants: Macron. By AFP.

More than half of the EU leaders were to meet in Brussels last night to grapple with a resurgent political crisis over migration that threatens to tear the bloc apart.

On the eve of the mini-summit in Brussels, French President ­Emmanuel Macron said states that refuse to accept migrants should face financial penalties. …

Mr Macron, speaking after talks in Paris with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, said member states that benefit from EU co-operation but “claim ­national self-interest when it comes to the issue of migrants” should have sanctions imposed on them.

Just so history knows where you stand, Mr Macron.
