Serhat TUNAR -TDO- A possible military action in northern Syria has reignited concerns about a renewed outbreak of the migrant crisis in the European Union. German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the migrant crisis that the European Union was caught off guard in 2015 should not happen again.
European Union interior ministers discussed in Luxembourg the situation of migrants trying to reach Europe from Africa, Asia and the Middle East due to poverty and wars, whose numbers have reached 45,600 this year alone. Speaking at the meeting, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said that if the countries at the external borders of the European Union were left alone to fight this problem, a common European migrant policy could not be formed, and if this policy did not, there would be uncontrolled migration across Europe. Seehofer added that he did not want this to happen again.
The Social Security and social services systems of members of the European Union, which had deep disagreements over the migration wave in 2015, had suffered major financial difficulties due to the migration wave.
