Minister Soini on President’s speech: Justified concern

Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini thinks that President Sauli Niinistö’s speech at the Finnish Parliament’s opening ceremony reflected his concern for the international situation. What comes to international agreements, Mr Soini believes President Niinistö respects them. « He is concerned over the Dublin agreement and the EU’s systems. His concern is justified, because there are countries which have not been able to follow the EU’s regulations, » he adds. Minister Soini emphasises that extensive EU collaboration is needed to solve the refugee crisis. The external borders must be fixed, he says.
