EU ministers to hold migrant crisis talks in October: France

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (R) and French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve leave the podium in Berlin on August 20, 2015Europe’s interior and foreign ministers will meet in mid-October to discuss how to respond to the huge influx of migrants and refugees arriving at EU borders, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Thursday. The meeting, to be followed by further talks in Berlin, will pave the way for broader discussions at an EU summit in Malta in November which will also be attended by African leaders, Cazeneuve said after talks with his German counterpart Thomas de Maiziere in the German capital. De Maiziere said it was “unacceptable that European institutions continue to work at their current slow pace” in finding a joint solution to the crisis, adding that “too little” was being done to implement decisions that have already been taken.
