STRASBOURG - Europe has one border and that is the responsibility of all member states. Then hammered Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, Wednesday in a debate in Strasbourg in preparation for a summit of EU leaders on Thursday and Friday in Brussels.
" We Europeans have not many boundaries, we have one and it is our common responsibility to protect ", said Juncker. He defended proposals for a European coastal and border guard possibly as a last resort remedy against the will of one country can intervene in order to guard the external borders of Europe.
" This is the missing link, so that Europeans can live as they used to be ", he said. " crises have taught us that national measures are not sufficient to tackle cross-border problems. "
