Roberto Moroni

We ask that a special European solidarity fund be created to ensure that the countries feeling primary impact from the humanitarian crises in progress will have the resources needed, provided by all the countries of Europe.feedback

Marius Ursan

At this Albita crossing point, border police from other Schengen countries came. So did officials from Frontex. They all said they were satisfied with the work we conduct here. I don't know for what reason we haven't been accepted. I can only say I am disappointed.feedback

Gil Arias Fernandez - Frontex

As long as the Turkish authorities do not cooperate, the situation will not become much better, so this is a crucial element.feedback

Arcadio Diaz - Council of Europe

No one has done enough under the circumstances, the only innocent people are those who've died. The others have to take their share of responsibility and they can't escape that duty through legal arguments. FRONTEX, the EU organisation responsible for external borders, has to live up to its name. I'm not blaming the crew of any of the boats they've been chartering, but it is a service that requires resources and skills that can be deployed effectively and efficiently.feedback

Reed Brody - Human Rights Watch

If Frontex is going to be involved in capturing and transferring migrants to Greek custody, then it needs to put pressure on Greece to raise the standards. Or it need to take those migrants into their own countries and hold them in their own countries. It can not just say 'here, take these people' and then just close its eyes to the filthy and degrading conditions in which these people are kept.feedback

Michele Cercone

Neither Frontex nor the officers who are deployed have operational control of what is happening in Greece. This responsibility remains fully in the hands of the Greek authorities.feedback

Roberto Moroni

Invasion by up to a million and a half, which is the estimate from the EU's border control agency Frontex, would bring any country to its knees. That's why we are asking for solidarity from all the EU countries, both for control and shelter.feedback

Joseph Muscat

People who apply for asylum but get their application refused need to go back. That should be part of the Frontex terms of reference and work.feedback

Margherita Sforza - Euronews

The fundamental question to answer is how to find new financial resources. Italy and the commission will fight in order to raise the EU's budget for Frontex in 2015.feedback

Jose Manuel Barroso - European Commission

Frontex [the EU border agency] is developing contingency planning to handle a possible larger influx of migrants. We are ready to mobilise additional funds.feedback

Catherine Ashton

I asked if they needed our help to cope with these exceptional circumstances. Their reply was clear: 'No thanks, we do not need the European Commission's assistance at this stage.' Despite the lack of a request from their side, I immediately asked my services, the Frontex agency and the European Asylum Support office, to assess how the European Commission could support the Italian authorities in this difficult situation.feedback

Patrick Gaubert - European Parliament

We work exclusively on legal immigration policy, but if one wants to promote legal immigration one sometimes has to be very tough with illegal immigration as well.feedback

Gilles de Kerchove

Unfortunately, for complicated legal reasons today we have constraints on Frontex. It is there to improve control of the EU's external borders, and is only able to patrol the flow of immigrants, while it should also take care of security.feedback

Cecilia Malmström - European Trade

It has to be very clear in all operations where Frontex is involved (and that's the only thing I can influence for the moment), that the responsibility of this (for a Frontex mission) has to be sorted out in advance.feedback

Angelino Alfano

Either the immigration issue needs to be taken over by Europe or Italy will start taking its own decisions #italycannotwait.feedback
