Austrian Chancellor Warns Against Possible EU Collapse Amid Migrant Crisis

Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann cautioned against the collapse of the European Union amid thousands of undocumented migrants arrive in European states.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Sunday, a refugee summit is expected to be held in Brussels to discuss the enormous migrant crisis and the ways to solve it.

“Now the speech is about either a common Europe or about a quiet collapse of the European Union. One path is burdensome, difficult and supposedly long and the other one would lead to the chaos,” Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann told the Austrian Kronen Zeitung newspaper on Saturday.

He added that securing of the EU external borders is important, but the construction of the walls on the borders of the EU states would not solve the problem.
