Surprise! NATO Chief Says Military Means Cannot Solve Migrant Crisis in EU

Military means cannot resolve the migrant crisis in the European Union, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday.

 All NATO allies are engaged in attempts to tackle the migrant crisis either as EU members or through international organizations, the NATO chief added.

"There is no military solution to the migrant crisis but what NATO does is by working with partners in the Middle East, in North Africa, in Afghanistan, we are addressing the root causes of the migrant crisis," Stoltenberg said at a joint press conference with Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel.

The European Union has been beset by a refugee crisis, with thousands of undocumented migrants, mainly from the Middle East and North Africa, arriving in EU member states, fleeing violence and poverty in their home countries.

According to the EU border agency Frontex, a record number of over 340,000 refugees and migrants arrived in the European Union between January and July 2015.

    In a swirl of confusion, excited migrants piled into a newly arrived train at Keleti in the Hungarian capital despite announcements in Hungarian and English that all services from the station to Western Europe had been cancelled. A statement on the main departures board said no more trains to Austria or Germany would depart "due to safety reasons until further notice!"

    Many migrants, who couldn't understand either language and were receiving no advice from Hungarian officials, piled aboard in a standing-room-only crush and hoped for the best. Instead, the train soon stopped northwest of Budapest in the town of Bicske, where dozens of riot police stood waiting to escort the human cargo to one of the country's major camps for asylum seekers -- an overcrowded, open-door facility that many of the migrants already had left days before.............
