Austrian Vice Chancellor Mitterlehner meets the Austrian EPP MEPS

Brüssel, 18. Februar 2016  -  Die Flüchtlingskrise, die Zusammenarbeit mit der Türkei, EU-Aussengrenzschutz, die besondere Situation Südtirols in der Debatte um zusätzliche Grenzkontrollen im Schengenraum und das britische EU-Referendum waren Themen einer Arbeitssitzung der ÖVP-Delegation im Europäischen Parlament mit Bundesparteiobmann und Vizekanzler Reinhold Mitterlehner am 18. Februar 2016.

"All dies sind Themen, die eine enge Abstimmung zwischen Innenpolitik und Europapolitik erfordern. In allen diesen Fragen gibt es nur europäische Lösungen oder gar keine Lösungen. Nationalstaatliche Einzelmaßnahmen sind höchstens Zwischenschritte", so Othmar Karas, Vorsitzender der ÖVP-Delegation im Europäischen Parlament.
