UK slams ‘abhorrent’ attempt by Belarus to ‘engineer’ migrant crisis on EU border
The Metro says Britain has accused Belarus’s authoritarian president Alexander Lukashenko of an ‘abhorrent’ attempt to engineer a migrant crisis in an effort to undermine European unity.
Boris Johnson criticised the ‘contrived crisis’ and insisted the UK stands ‘shoulder-to-shoulder’ with its European allies as EU foreign ministers considered fresh sanctions against the regime in Minsk.
Thousands of migrants, mainly from the Middle East, are trapped on the Belarus border with Poland, where the authorities are refusing to allow them to enter the EU.
