Macron proposes Schengen revision
Schengen Agreement should be revised, French President Emmanuel Macron said , suggesting a number of countries should possibly be excluded from it. H also stressed the necessary to completely restructure the development policy and migration policy.
“The famous Schengen agreement… no longer works… Europe [that I believe in] keeps its borders, protects them, in this Europe there is a reasonable right to refugee status, and responsibility accompanies solidarity… It is on this basis that it is necessary to reform the Schengen area,” Macron proposed a press conference, saying that after the revision there would be less states in the Schengen due to those member-states which “do not want to ensure common borders.”
The proposal was put forward in the framework of the national “Grand Debate“.
