The President of European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, has responded to the Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern who had requested an exemption from the relocation plan of migrants. The letter urges Austria to fulfill its duty to help Greece and Italy, it’s written that “The Commission is ready to discuss how to assist the Austrian authorities to gradually fulfill their obligations. Of course we take into account the solidarity that Austria has shown in the past”. Interior Minister, Wolfgang Sobotka, responded positively to the demands of Brussels. “We are legally bound to respect the Europe Agreement and we will do it”. The staff of the Chancellor Christian Kern instead still sees “room for maneuver”, referring to a “gradual” application, to which Juncker’s letter makes mention.
