The “informal meeting” is expected to discuss EU borders, how to distribute refugees and asylum processing centers. France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Greece, and Bulgaria are planning on attending, according to Deutsche Welle.
Merkel called the main EU summit meeting due to pressure from German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer to create a solution to migration issues and border security in Germany, according to TIME Monday.
