EU ministers to hold new migration crisis meeting next Tuesday


European Union interior ministers will hold an emergency council next Tuesday, Sept. 22, to discuss the migration crisis, the meeting's chairman said after a similar meeting on Monday ended in deadlock.

Luxembourg, which holds the EU's rotating presidency, said in a statement it wanted the council to agree a mechanism to relocate 120,000 asylum-seekers from frontier states, a matter of bitter division between Germany and other western states on the one hand and Hungary and eastern allies on the other.
