German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on June 13th that Europe needs a more unified approach to migration that addresses the interests of every member state. She noted that Italy felt it was not receiving sufficient support from other European Union states.

Merkel has been facing sharp criticism of her own migration policies from fellow German conservatives. She said it was important to maintain a unified European approach and warned against any state seeking unilateral actions, Reuters has reported. 

After a meeting with Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel in Berlin, Merkel said, "It's very, very important to me that Germany does not act unilaterally, but that everything we do is orderly, discussed, with agreements with others, so that we have a really unified European approach."
