Romania PM: EU must do more to solve migrant crisis

As a member of the EU, Romania now helps to formulate, decide, and vote on policies that affect migrants.

    Victor Ponta, Romanian prime minister, says the EU should do more to solve the ongoing migrant crisis.

    "It is unacceptable for a European Union - prosperous, democratic, and promoting human values - to say that, 'there's nothing we can do except reject the people,'" Ponta told Al Jazeera during an interview in Doha, Qatar.

    "We cannot just build a fence."

    For centuries, Romanians have been on the move within Europe and have historically been discriminated against.

    Now, however, Romania is part of the EU and is helping to formulate, decide, and vote on policies that affect migrants.
