ATHENS, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Five southern European Union (EU) member states on the frontline of irregular migration flows in recent years urged their EU partners to show more solidarity in addressing the challenge, during a ministerial meeting here on Saturday.

Migration and interior ministers of Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Spain and Malta discussed the common problems they are facing and issued a joint statement on their proposals for the new European Pact on Migration and Asylum.

The draft proposed by the European Commission in September does not answer their main concerns, they said.

"We still see significant imbalances in proposed legislative texts which are far away from the principle of solidarity and fair burden-sharing," they said, according to an e-mailed press release from the Greek Ministry of Migration and Asylum.

The five Mediterranean countries called for closer cooperation with transit and origin countries, the establishment of a common European mechanism for the return of those who are not eligible for asylum as well as more to be done among all member states regarding the relocation of asylum seekers.

"In the negotiations on the European Pact on Migration and Asylum, there are still elements of an imbalance between measures of responsibility and measures of solidarity," said Italian Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese at a press conference at the end of the meeting.

"Solidarity must become reality. Solidarity on the migration issue requires the strong protection of EU's external borders and also new dynamic agreements with third countries," European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas, who joined the meeting along with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, told Greek national broadcaster ERT.

"I think the time has come for Europe to provide a sustainable, effective and realistic solution to the migration crisis. It is not possible for five countries, and in the case of Greece, five Aegean Sea islands, to shoulder the burden for the entire European continent," Greek Minister of Migration and Asylum Notis Mitarachi said.
