EU reviews "open door policy" with a plan to stop flow of refugees

The European Union is ready to open the first centers of registration of migrants in Greece and Italy until November.

The decision, included in a package of measures to curb the wave of immigration to Europe was announced, this Wednesday, after the extraordinary Council of European leaders.

Brussels will unlock one billion euros to support the action of the UN Agency for refugees in neighboring countries of Syria, Jordan, Lebanon or like Turkey, which currently receive more than 4 million people.

To the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, "the largest wave of refugees and migrants is yet to come. That's why we need to fix the open-door policy. We must concentrate now on the protection of external borders and on assistance to refugees and countries in our neighbourhood ".

After an agreement "forceps" on the distribution of 120 thousand migrants on Tuesday, European leaders have managed to get the support of the Eastern countries to defended more checks at the borders of the Schengen area.

The Hungarian Prime Minister, until now reticent with regard to the solutions of Brussels, is back to defend the controversial border fence of the country, "only in this way will we be able to control the borders and immigration within the Schengen zone. But if you don't like the fence, we can also continue to let migrants cross the territory to Austria and Germany, "joked Viktor Orban.

At the end of the meeting, the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, pointed out the need to cooperate with Turkey in the Union's external borders.
