Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders receives Dutch ambassadors of EU countries and candidate member states in the Europe building in Amsterdam, on November 25, 2015Europe must work to keep the dream of the passport-free Schengen zone alive, Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders said Wednesday, adding it would be a priority for his country as it takes over the EU presidency. The Netherlands holds the rotating presidency of the European Union for six months from January 1, just as the 28-member body grapples with a migrant crisis and the aftermath of the Paris attacks. Last week the EU agreed to rush through reforms to the Schengen zone by the end of the year amid growing concerns about border security in the wake of November 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people.
