Berlin calls for sanctions on EU states that reject refugee quotas

“German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere (pictured above) said Tuesday there needed to be a discussion about how to put pressure on member states who are resisting a plan to distribute refugees across the bloc. Several eastern countries have rejected a proposal from the EU executive Commission for compulsory quotas to distribute 120,000 refugees. Crisis talks between interior ministers from the 28-country union ended on Monday with Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Poland and the Czech Republic expressing strong opposition to the plan.”
