Paris, Berlin eye European centre to fight radicalism
Paris and Berlin are looking to create a European centre for the fight against religious radicalisation, the French and German interior ministers said on Wednesday.
"We have decided to propose a working group for fighting and preventing radicalisation," French Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux told a news conference in Paris.
"We will take the common initiative of proposing a European centre for sharing best practices on this issue which is a concern for the whole of Europe," he said.
"We have already done a great deal in terms of cracking down... but a crackdown alone can never be the only response in terms of fighting terrorism," said his German counterpart, Thomas de Maiziere.
