"There is now a real chance to heal the open wound in the EU on migration policy," said Manfred Weber MEP, Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, after today's ruling by the EU Court of Justice. "We expect all EU Member States to respect the ruling and implement it."
"What is crucial now is that EU countries work together. Only through cooperation can migration flows be managed in the long term. In order to achieve a long-term solution, everyone needs to be ready for compromise. Concerns must also be addressed. Solidarity is not a one-way street," said Manfred Weber.
