UN chief urges European leaders to address migrant crisis

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged European leaders to address the migrant crisis in a “more comprehensive and collective way”.

He said search and rescue operations should be further strengthened, with efforts not borne by just one or two countries.

Mr Ban said he would be engaging with the EU leadership for more in-depth discussions on the issue in Brussels later.

The Secretary General also commended Ireland for its efforts in resettling migrants, but said every country needed to do more.

He also highlighted problems with migration in southeast Asia.

Mr Ban was speaking following a meeting with Taoiseach Enda Kenny at Government Buildings on the third and final day of his visit to Ireland.

    Maybe if the UN would do more in war ravaged areas, or do more to stop military aggression, there would be less refugees to worry about.
