Speaking at the Madrid summit of heads of state and government from the ranks of the European People’s Party, Merkel said that barriers and walls can solve no problems.

Earlier on, in his speech about the migrant crisis, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic called for a European resolve.

For Serbia it is very important that it be told clearly what our task regarding the migrant crisis should be – once we get the answer, Serbia will be able to fulfil all its obligations, but it will also have to protect its state and national interests, not only as regards this crisis, but also as regards UNESCO and other matters, B92 quoted Vucic as saying.
