Merkel promised that the chaos of refugees to Germany will not be repeated
“I support the Chancellor in her moral decisions, but criticized for a complete lack of agreement with other member countries of the EU.

TASS) unilaterally and in haste,” said macron. “It should not be unilateral decisions that turn us into a minority,” he added.

In the light of new security challenges facing the EU, he suggested a “reset” of Europe. “If we, the 27 countries will not be able to move forward, we need to initiate structured cooperation in defence of a small group of States”, – the politician considers.
At the same time he urged “not to ruin the Schengen area, but to strengthen it and worry about that the system worked.” According to Macron, the EU should significantly strengthen the protection of external borders.
