EU migration chief urges support for disembarkation plan
BRUSSELS-The Associated Press
EU Migration Commissioner Dmitris Avramopoulos says a meeting in Luxembourg on Oct. 8 of the bloc’s interior ministers is “a moment for all member states to show more solidarity and more responsibility.”
But Avramopoulos says the EU “cannot only try to find ad-hoc solutions. We need permanent mechanisms.”
The system would work based on “pre-declared pledges” countries would make to accept asylum-seekers and involve “streamlining procedures” currently in place.
