Tusk tells EU leaders to end migrant blame game

European Council President Donald Tusk has called for an end to the “recriminations” and mix-ups at the EU leaders’ summit on refugees. Brussels has launched action against 19 states for breaking common asylum rules.

Tusk’s comments came ahead of what was expected to be a hostile summit on the migrant crisis in Brussels on Wednesday evening.

The European Council’s president called for a “concrete plan” to end the chaos of the past few weeks, which has seen tens of thousands of people – many escaping the Syrian conflict – attempt to cross European borders to claim asylum.

He warned the bloc faced the prospect of “millions” of migrants at its borders, if it didn’t take urgent action.
