French president responds to MEP Bakoyannis' question on migration: More EU collaboration

The protection of the EU's borders cannot burden the entry countries alone, French President Emmanuel Macron said at the Council of Europe's Parliamentary Assembly in Strasbourg on Tuesday.
Replying to a question on behalf of the European People's Party (PPE) by New Democracy MEP Dora Bakoyannis, Macron said France commits to the increase of Frontex's budget and staff. He also called for a unified European policy focusing on the needs and problems of countries of origin for migrants, at the eastern borders of the Mediterranean, and for continuous European coordination. "We must share the cost of protecting the borders," the French president said.
Bakoyannis had referred to the problematic rise of migrant inflows in recent months, and said Turkey is expending no effort to stem these flows.
