"Another issue is migration, which, thanks to the hybrid actions of [Belarusian] President [Alexander] Lukashenko, has again become very relevant for Poland, Lithuania and, of course, Germany. We will talk about new sanctions, economic sanctions, we can pay attention - the foreign ministers have already discussed this - to clearly show that we condemn this kind of trafficking of persons with state participation," Merkel said before the start of the EU leaders' summit.
