Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka and the Minister-President of Saxony Stanislaw Tillich agreed in talks in Prague on Wednesday on the need for the EU to lower and regulate the continuing wave of migrants and to quickly adopt measures bolstering Schengen area borders. In the case steps lowering the number of migrants flowing from Turkey to Greece proved ineffective, the leaders also discussed a backup plan which would seal the Balkan migration route. Both Mr Sobotka and Mr Tillich agreed that the EU needed to cooperate as a whole in tackling the migration crisis.
