Foreign ministers pivot on illegal migration

Luxembourg.  The EU Foreign ministers discussed the external aspects of migration in preparation for the European Council of 22-23 June.  They considered partnerships should be strengthened in order to produce more results, given the number of lives being lost on the Central Mediterranean Route. Co-operation with partner countries should be reinforced with a view to further fighting traffickers, reducing the number of arrivals of irregular migrants to the EU and ensuring returns and readmission.  Supporting improved migration management in Libya with a view to helping protect  migrants and refugees also continues to be a key objective for the EU.
