EU Ministers review new migration pact

Foreign Desk Report

BRUSSELS: EU governments started talks on Thursday on a proposed European Commission overhaul of broken migration rules, trying to resolve years of bitter divisions and provide a better welcome for refugees fleeing the Middle East and Africa.
The video-conference of EU interior ministers is the first chance to exchange views on the scheme proposed by the EU executive last month, and especially on its most sensitive part which de facto obliges each EU country to host some refugees.
