Zaorálek: Information campaigns in countries of origin could help reduce migrant numbers

10-11-2015

Information campaigns should be held in states from which the most migrants leave for Europe in order to prevent their number growing further, says the Czech minister of foreign affairs. Lubomír Zaorálek made the comment at a gathering in Prague on Tuesday of Czech ambassadors from 22 countries affected by the migration crisis. Mr. Zaorálek said his officials had been informed by diplomats that reports were spreading in migrants’ countries of origin that Europe could absorb up to three million refugees.
