On UK & Irish media, Decoster urges cooperation to avoid migrant tragedies
Following the latest migrant tragedy near Calais where at least 27 people died trying to cross the English Channel from France, our President François Decoster, Vice-President of the Hauts de France region which includes Calais where the drama took place, reacted on British and Irish media, urging more cooperation between the EU and the UK on one hand and between France and the UK on the other hand. Reacting to the letter by UK Prime Minister Johnson to Presidents Macron and Michel, he rejected the comparison with the situation on the Polish-Belarus border.
