Luxembourg foreign minister Jean Asselborn and I gave an interview to The European Security and Defence Union.
It is an encouraging message from this veteran European:
„Jean Asselborn: I admit that Mr Knaus’ pragmatism offers a refreshing and informed perspective on the issues that institutional actors seem unable or unwilling to adopt. I agree with many of the solutions offered in the book. However, the political reality in Europe today is that some Member States have adopted a very cynical attitude towards asylum.“
We will not give up. Cynicism is never a good answer.
