European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and U.S. President Joe Biden discussed potentially imposing sanctions against airlines that bring migrants into Belarus during their meeting Wednesday, the Associated Press reported.
Mass influxes of migrants have been gathering along Belarus' shared borders with European Union members Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, prompting allegations that Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is sending them in an attempt to destabilize the bloc.
Von der Leyen said that Belarus' alleged targeting of the EU with the migrants "is an attempt by an authoritarian regime to try to destabilize democratic neighbors. This will not succeed."
