  • [01] European Commission presents plan for relocation of 40,000 asylum seekers from Greece, Italy

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/ M. Aroni) The European Commission on Wednesday proposed the relocation of 16,000 asylum seekers in Greece and 24,000 in Italy to other EU member-states within two years, presenting the actions under the European Agenda for Migration.

    The Commission's proposal calls for the relocation of 40,000 asylum seekers that reached Greece and Italy after April 15 2015, of which 40 percent are Syrians and Eritreans. The Commission said that the relocation will be carried out over a period of two years, while Italy and Greece must promise to improve procedures for examining asylum applications.

    European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos, presenting the Commission's proposals, stressed that the target was to ensure a "minimum degree of solidarity" while at the same time "securing European borders and saving lives."
