The 1 July 2015, the rotating six-month presidency of the Council of the EU will be in the hands of Luxembourg, one of the smallest, yet most experienced member states. Luxembourg will have to deal with many pressing issues, including the Greek debt crisis, an increase in irregular migration and the preparation for the climate change conference in Paris in December. The European Parliament’s press office asked all of the country's six MEPs what they see as the main challenges.
"There should not be an à la carte Europe", stated Luxembourg's Minister of Foreign and European Affairs, Minister of Immigration and Asylum, Jean Asselborn, in an interview with the Trierischer Volksfreund on 1 July 2015 at the launch of the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union, during which he addressed the subjects of Brexit, Grexit, migration and TTIP.
