Vatican newspaper chides EU over migrant crisis

L’Osservatore Romano has published a front-page op-ed piece criticizing the response of European nations, especially Hungary, to the migrant crisis.

“What seems really insurmountable is the persistent inability of Europe to live up to its own fundamental values,” Giuseppe Fiorentino, the newspaper’s vice-editor, wrote in the September 16 edition.

Stating that Turkey is home to two million refugees, while the 28 nations of the EU are at a stalemate over welcoming 120,000, Fiorentino wrote that “if one of the European principles– such as freedom of movement of persons– falters under the pressure of some tens of thousands of migrants, it means that the very idea of union is really weak.”
