Austria wants to limit refugee influx from Afghanistan and Parisians could swim in the Seine

This week our podcast focuses on a security conference organised by Austria with the Central Asian states to discuss further strategy regarding Afghanistan. Austria and other EU countries are asking Afghanistan’s neighbours to manage migrations flows and prevent a potential migration crisis like the one Europe faced in 2015.

To connect the dots on this unfolding story, I’m joined today by Oliver Noyan from EURACTIV Germany.

We are also talking about the promise made by the Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo that swimming in the Seine will be possible in the coming years. According to the mayor, the river will even be able to host Olympic events such as the triathlon and the 10km freestyle. To hear more on this story, I spoke with Clara Bauer-Babef from EURACTIV France.
