Tackle refugee problem in countries of origin

Europe must not close its borders to refugees, argues the centre-right daily The Malta Independent: "Many believe that the solution is to close Europe's borders. But that will not stop the problem. The real solution is to offer peace, stability and the possibility of a good future in the countries of origin. That, however, will take decades. ... August will soon roll into September and the weather will become more and more unsettled. Migrants will be more desperate to make the trip before the weather turns, and that is going to lead to more overcrowding on boats, which will ultimately translate into more deaths. We are still very far from finding a solution."
