During Monday's EU-Turkey Summit for the refugee issue in Brussels "we agreed that the length of 14,000 km coastline border to Greece will be guaranteed jointly", said the Federal Chancellor of Austria Werner Faymann, informing on Tuesday night the Austrian cabinet at its weekly meeting in Vienna on the results of the Summit,.

The protection of the EU's external borders is certainly simpler in cooperation with its neighbors, he said, noting that moreover there will be investment in infrastructure of the reception centers in Turkey.

According to the Austrian Chancellor, if possible all the refugees should remain in the region (Turkey), so as to provide them close to their home, shelter, adequate nutrition, as well as schools and care.

As stated by himself, the goal is to create better living conditions in order to reduce the number of refugees who need to continue the flight to Europe and to that end the EU will spend three billion euros, while the European Commission President Jean -Claude Juncker will shortly make proposals as to which amounts will come from the Community budget and which of the national budgets.
