EU must uphold migrants’ fundamental rights at Belarus border, Germany says

BRUSSELS (Reuters) -Legal standards must be respected at the Belarus border, Germany said on Thursday, as EU interior ministers met to discuss curbing some migrants’ rights to ward off what the bloc has called a hybrid attack by Minsk. The ministers will consider a proposal by the European Commission that would allow Poland, Lithuania and Latvia – all sharing a border with Belarus – to restrict migrants’ rights for six months and require them to claim asylum only at designated locations, among other measures. Germany’s new interior minister, Nancy Faeser, called Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko’s behaviour inhumane as she arrived for her first meeting with EU counterparts in Brussels.
