UN Says EU Must Accept 200,000 Refugees

Remember when the UN was an organization designed to resolve international conflicts? Yeah, now they are dictating domestic policies to member nations.

EU nations must accept up to 200,000 refugees as part of a “common strategy” to replace their “piecemeal” approach to the migrant crisis, the UN says.

Antonio Guterres, head of the UN refugee agency, said the EU must mobilise “full force” for the crisis, calling it a “defining moment”.

EU leaders, split over sharing the refugee burden, are scrambling to agree a response in meetings on Friday.
