Egypt moves to the forefront of the EU immigration debate

Egypt moves to the forefront of the EU immigration debate: European Union Council President Donald Tusk and Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz have put put Egypt on this Wednesday’s agenda at the informal gathering of all 28 EU heads of state and government in Salzburg, the EU Observer reports, citing EU sources. The EU has been increasingly seeing Egypt as a success story in Europe’s bid to stem the flow of illegal migrants and human trafficking, the source added. "It is worth recalling that the Egyptian authorities have made the fight against smuggling and trafficking their priority. As a result there have been no irregular departures from Egypt to Europe this year," Tusk said. Migration policy is set to be among the key agenda items at the gathering.
