Mitarachi: Imperative to Make Progress on New Migration and Asylum Agreement

BRUSSELS– Migration and Asylum Minister Notis Mitarachi on Tuesday pointed out the need for progress in terms of the new Migration and Asylum Agreement, on his arrival for the EU Interior Ministers meeting in Luxembourg. He underlined the importance of equally sharing the migration and refugees among the state members.

"It is imperative to make progress today in terms of the new agreement on migration and asylum. We need to find ways to limit the migration pressure on the EU by reducing primary and secondary flows and by protecting the common European borders and emphasising the external dimension. What is important for the Mediterranean countries, the MED5, is the reaching of an agreement in terms of solidarity in order to reassure that we equally allocate the burden in the migration issue" Mitarachi said.
