Breaking: Tension as EU plan for African migrants 'dropped' 2

The first ever summit between the European Union and Arab states has ended in the Egyptian tourist resort Sharm el-Sheikh.

The leaders pledged to tackle terrorism and organised crime.

According to reports, they also talked about migration but it appears that the European Union’s plan for “regional debarcation platforms” was dropped.

They were meant to be centres in the countries where migrants start their journeys, where officials can assess who are the genuine asylum seekers.

Catherine Woollard, the secretary general of the campaign group, European Centre for Refugees and Exiles says North African countries never accepted the idea.
