MOSCOW, July 3. /TASS/. The European Union’s schemes against illegal migration are to be scrutinized by the United Nations Security Council, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday after talks with his counterpart from Luxembourg Jean Asselborn.
"We understand the European Union’s concerns over the inrush of illegal migrants from Africa, first of all via Libya, to the countries of the European Union," Lavrov said. "I know that the European Union is elaborating schemes to address this threat, to stop criminal business of organizing transportation of illegal migrants."
"We proceed from the fact that these schemes will strictly meet the norms of international law and will be subject of consideration at the United Nations Security Council in case these schemes provide for any kind of enforcement measures," Lavrov stressed.
