The EU is self-critical look at its foreign policy in connection with the "crisis of immigrants," said Russia's permanent representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov.
"The EU should probably self-critical to look not only at current policy - distribution of quotas And so on - but also the role that the EU played in 2011 in the Libyan crisis, in subsequent years in the Syrian crisis. When the situation is uncontrollable, but Europeans bombed Libya, which turned into a nobody managed a springboard for illegal flow of migrants, "Chizhov said in an interview Last news on the sidelines of the European forum Alpbach - annual meeting of European politicians, intellectuals And youth, which this year has become a Central theme of" the fall of immigrants ".
Chizhov said the correction of the rhetoric around the fall." I noticed that if you have previously spoken on the need to coordinate efforts to battle illegal immigration, yesterday there similar words may sound. Spoke about the necessity of coordination of efforts for a rescue And refugee - like it not one And the same citizens, " - said Chizhov.
However, at the same time with slogans to a unified policy on this issue continue to be double standards, he said.
"More than anyone else here - And only here - criticized Hungary And her own persona to the Prime Minister (for the erection of a fence on the Serbian-Hungarian border - ed.) though no one talks about those walls that require to build the authorities of Latvia And Estonia on the Russian border, no one talks about the barriers, which were erected by Mr. (Prime Minister Arseniy) Yatsenyuk on Ukraine-Russia border. And even Macedonian law enforcement authorities, which tear gas drove the workers back to the site Greece too And if scolded, So, in a fatherly way. So that there are visible selectivity, double standards. And talk about a uniform policy in this direction ", - said Chizhov.
