French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that some 14 EU member states had agreed to a new “solidarity mechanism” proposed by Germany and France to distribute migrants across the EU.

The EU foreign and interior ministers met in Paris to discuss immigration and security issues.

“At the conclusion of this morning’s meeting, 14 EU member states expressed their agreement in principle to the Franco-German document,” Macron told reporters.
