At a meeting of Home Affairs Ministers in Luxembourg, Vice-President Reding reminded Ministers that free movement is the EU Treaty right which citizens value the most and see as the most important achievement of EU integration.
She said: "It is our common responsibility to strongly uphold this right. The four freedoms anchored in the Treaty cannot be picked and chosen. You will always see me fighting for preserving free movement, but I will also always be on your side when it comes to using existing EU tools to effectively fight against abuse."
