Germany: We ‘rocked’ Europe – CSU Vice-Chairman on Brussels migration deal

Germany, Munich
July 1, 2018 at 15:55 GMT -00:00 · Published

CSU board members arrived at the party's headquarters in Munich on Sunday to discuss the EU-wide asylum agreement reached during the European Council summit last week.

"The CSU rocked Europe during last few weeks. Though the pressure that was created Europe started to move and reached positive results. And I am happy that we, as a Bavarian party, are able to put such an issue on the table and move it in a positive direction," said the CSU Vice-Chairman Manfred Weber upon his arrival.

After the talks, the CSU chairman and the Interior Minister of Germany Horst Seehofer is expected to inform the media of the conclusions reached in a press conference at around 17:00 GMT.

Leaders of the 28 European Union member states met in Brussels for a European Council summit between June 28 and 29. The summit was focused on migration as well as economic and financial reforms.

They reached an agreement over several approaches to the migration issue, including the creation of disembarkation platforms outside Europe, boosting EU support for the Libyan coast guard, and taking internal measures to prevent migrants from moving between countries within the EU.
