MUNICH, February 13. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday the European Union’s migration policy of the recent years cannot be recognized as satisfactory, which creates problems both in Germany, Finland and Russia.
"Thank you for paying attention to some of my words said in an interview on migration. I can only say it once again: the migration policy of the recent years, at least within the European Union, cannot be recognized as satisfactory. It creates problems to all, to Germany where we are staying now, to Finland and to us as well," Medvedev said at a meeting with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.
He offered his vision of the ways to solve this problem. "To solve this problem, two tasks are to be resolved. The first one is to try to remove the causes that have created such a powerful migration wave. By the way, we will be speaking at the Munich conference. But we also have our own applied Russian-Finnish aspect," he said.
He said that after his meeting with Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila he instructed Russian agencies to hold talks with the Finnish counterparts. "A meeting was held between the Finnish interior minister and the director of Russia’s Federal Security Service and the head of Russia’s Migration Service. It was noted at that meeting that we all, both Russia and Finland, should be guided by a number of European conventions. On the other hand, we have a possibility to try to find a solution within the framework of our agreement on check point on 1994. This work will be continued," the Russian prime minister said.
