In his speech following the Justice and Home Affairs Council, Commissioner Avramopoulos underlined the importance of European cooperation for borders and refugees. He said: "In the next 10 days, we need tangible and clear results on the ground. Otherwise there is a risk that the whole system will completely break down. We all have the responsibility to step up our efforts to apply the agreed European solutions. There is no time for uncoordinated actions."
