STRATFORD-UPON-AVON — Spain joined Europe's five other major countries to boost measures against human trafficking.
 
Madrid and the other members of the so-called Group of Six  set out plans to boost cooperation on combating terrorism, and tax fraud which is said to fund violence.
 
At a two-day meeting in Britain ending on Thursday, the interior ministers of Spain, the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Poland also promised more cooperation against terrorism and tax fraud.

They will organise a joint policy on repatriation of illegal immigrants.

They also said they would work together to stop terrorists from using the Internet to plan attacks.
 
Concerns about alienation of European Muslims were highlighted after reports of violence across the Continent, particularly in France.
 
The ministers agreed to work together to promote integration and said they would stage media campaigns to try to persuade young Muslims to reject radical ideologies and embrace democratic values.
 
They said they would target young audiences with messages from "secular Muslim" role models as part of the effort.
 
The Group of Six nations does not have any official decision-making power within the European Union but carries a great deal of influence within the bloc. 

The group also promised to work together against VAT fraud which can be used to fund terror.
