The meeting in Innsbruck will focus in particular on coming up with a common migration plan, with Austria expected to push to change the EU's migration policy so it is no longer possible to make asylum requests on European soil.Only exiles from countries that directly border the European Union would be able to make their asylum requests on EU territory.Salvini said he and Seehofer shared a "common objective: fewer landings, fewer deaths, fewer migrants in Italy as well as in Germany".But the Italian minister said he expected to see more action to toughen the EU's external frontiers before agreeing to any deal to take back migrants.
