18 April, 17:24

    (ANSAmed) - Brussels, April 18 - Germany has proposed taxing petrol to help pay for the migrant and refugee crisis, EU sources said Monday, saying German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble had "already discussed it" with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker". Germany has ruled out an Italian proposal to use Eurobonds. The Italian idea was part of a migration compact sent to the EU Friday, which includes efforts to forge agreements with countries of origin and transit.
