“As much as a refugee crisis, it is a crisis of solidarity in the EU”, claims Greens Group
Richard More O’Ferrall, spokesperson for the Greens Group, discusses the refugee crisis that has become the number one priority for the EU.
A special Home Affairs Ministers meeting took place on Monday 14 September to update the current relocation of asylum seekers scheme across the EU. A second emergency scheme was adopted last week during Strasbourg Plenary session to relocate 160,000 refugees, involving all EU Member States. However, the Greens call for a permanent scheme to be adopted and the EU asylum package of rules to be revised.
