EU President Donald Tusk says Europe must return to its open-border policy, as he starts his tour of the Balkan migration route in Vienna.
"Today we are opening a new chapter of our struggle with the migration crisis, called 'Back to Schengen'," he said after meeting Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, referring to controls set up in Europe's border-free Schengen area.
"Secondly, we must face together the humanitarian consequences of our decision," Tusk said as he called for support for Greece, which has faced growing pressure from stranded migrants who are no longer able to travel onwards on the Balkan route.
