EU executive summons Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian envoys over migration


BRUSSELS, Oct 14 (Reuters) – The European Union’s executive summoned envoys from member states Poland, Lithuania and Latvia on Thursday over the destiny of migrants caught on their border with Belarus.

“I’m very concerned about reports of people including children stuck in forests in dire situation at external EU borders with Belarus,” European Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson stated in demanding a gathering with the three nationwide ambassadors to EU hub Brussels.

The three nations have reported sharp will increase within the variety of migrants from Africa and the Middle East crossing into the soil from Belarus in latest months.

The EU blames Belarus for intentionally orchestrating the stream to place stress on the bloc in retaliation for sanctions it had slapped on Minsk over human rights abuses.
