Merkel calls for EU solidarity to tackle illegal migration

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has appealed to European Union members to show solidarity to ensure the Frontex Border Agency has sufficient powers to be effective and help stop illegal migration, in line with European commission plans.

According to Merkel, the question of fighting illegal migration means external border protection has to be strengthened, which means, the countries with an external border must give up some of their national responsibilities.

She added that, it requires a degree of solidarity to help countries that are in trouble.
