Far right is the ‘real threat’ to Europe, says Greek PM
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says a meeting of left-wing leaders in Paris on Saturday has made progress on a “common front” to tackle the migrant crisis.
He also says the rise of extreme right forces is the “real threat” to Europe and is urging progressive migration policies to counter it. He warns of “forces that build fences and create a very bad atmosphere.”
A rising nationalist party is expected to perform strongly in three German state elections on Sunday, gaining support from those uneasy about Chancellor Angela Merkel’s migrant policy.
On Saturday, extreme right-wing youths torched tires and blocked migrants from roads in France’s northern port of Calais, leading to several arrests.
