Valls: EU must limit migrant numbers

"Europe must find ways to ensure that migrants are dealt with in the countries neighboring Syria. Otherwise, Europe's ability to effectively control its borders is called into question," French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Tuesday. He was speaking during a lunch with foreign media. Some extracts from his comments were published by Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung.

Yesterday, the European Commission adopted a legal framework for the EU to give financial assistance to Turkey to cope with millions of Syrian refugees on its soil. But according to AFP press agency, sources said that finding the three billion euros Anakara wants could be tough.

Europe has been struggling for months to cope with its largest migrant crisis since World War II. Concerns about security have also increased since Islamic State jihadists killed 130 people in Paris this month in the worst such attacks on French soil.

The EU agreed Friday to rush through reforms to the passport-free Schengen zone by the end of the year during a meeting in Brussels, where France also pushed a controversial scheme to collect data on air passengers.
