АА: Turkey: Europe needs updated migration policies20 February 2019 | 21:44 | FOCUS News Agency
"Europe’s politics are being affected by migration … Its migration policies need to be updated," Suleyman Soylu told the 6th Ministerial Conference of Budapest Process, an interregional forum on migration, in Istanbul.
He said rising racism and discrimination had hampered European governments' “well-intentioned efforts.”
"Europe needs to take measures to fight racism and discrimination and needs to adopt the motto 'integrity in diversity' in tackling the migration issue," he added.
The Budapest Process, established in 1993, is a forum of over 50 governments and numerous international organizations, aimed at developing comprehensive and sustainable systems for orderly migration.
In his speech, Soylu said no era in history had been free of the phenomenon of mass migration.
“We should try to manage it together, instead of preventing it,” he said.
