PARIS (AP) – French President Emmanuel Macron and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis agreed to push for more solidarity in the European Union over the migrant crisis.

Mitsotakis, who took office on July, met with Macron in Paris on Thursday. He said the migrant crisis must not weigh only on the countries that are on the front line like Greece, Italy and Spain.

Macron implicitly criticized Italy’s hard-line interior minister, Matteo Salvini, who recently refused to allow migrants onboard a rescue ship to disembark.

Macron said “unacceptable decisions have been taken, again” and stressed that countries “must find a European solution.”
