A new German-Franco document that was presented on Thursday, states that EU countries that refuse to take refugees should pay to escape their responsibility, Reuters reports.

The measure is seen as a form of “alternative solidarity” in which EU member states pay into the EU’s budget for developmental projects in Africa.

The document aims to prevent renewed conflicts over taking migrants. By paying off their responsibility to take migrants, EU rows with countries that don’t want to take migrants or refugees could be prevented.

Among other things, the document does say that a situation should be avoided in which all countries prefer to pay.

Countries like Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic have frequently repeated they don’t want to take migrants.
