brussels - The Member States of the European Union must honor their commitments they have made to tackle the refugee crisis really fulfilling. EU Minister Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission JeAu-Claude Juncker Friday sent a letter to all 28 countries with the message that they must " deliver ".
Member States pledged a month ago to cough up 2.8 billion euros for the United Nations refugee and food program and for funds to Syria and Africa. So far only pledged more than half a billion.
