France's Hollande: Eritrea 'Becoming Empty' as Residents Leave
www.voanews.com | November 12, 2015
French President Francois Hollande says Africa needs more international development aid in order to curb the flow of migrants from African countries.
Speaking at a meeting of more than 60 leaders from both Africa and the European Union, Hollande said that unless the EU delivers in terms of aid, the migration crisis that has sent hundreds of thousands of people fleeing to Europe this year will continue.
Hollande noted that a lot of the migrants are from Eritrea and Sudan. He said that in the case of Eritrea "maximum pressure" has to be applied to the country's leaders to mend a serious situation. "Nobody is talking about it. It is a country that is becoming empty of its own population with unscrupulous leaders who let their people go."
