The Parliamentary Assembly emphasized the importance of effective border management as well as the rights of migrants and asylum seekers. The Assembly called on Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland to ensure respect for migrants’ and asylum seekers’ rights, and Belarus to stop instrumentalization of migrants and asylum seekers, and it asked members of the Council of Europe to support Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland.
