Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos and Commissioner for the Security Union Julian King will visit Vienna on Friday where they will participate in a ministerial conference on promoting partnership and building resilience with non-EU countries on security and migration.
The two-day event, organised by the Austrian Presidency of the Council, brings together home affairs ministers of EU Member States and non-EU countries from Africa and the Western Balkans as well as representatives of the relevant EU agencies and international organisations.
The conference already started today with discussions dedicated to cooperation with Western Balkan countries, including on asylum, migration and border protection, police cooperation and information exchange, and fighting terrorism. Friday's discussions, on the other hand, are expected to focus on cooperation on migration and security with African countries.
