'Member states must do more on voluntary relocation of migrants'

    BRUSSELS - EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson noted Thursday during a European Parliament plenary session that the others present had surely felt the same as she had on seeing photos of Greece's Moria refugee camp after flames destroyed it.
    She stressed that she had worked prior to the incident on a new EU pact on asylum and migration that would solve the situation and achieve an EU-wide migration and asylum system.
    She added that Europe must not accept that people live in such conditions as those that were seen in the camp even before the fire.
    Johansson then underscored that children must be focused on and asked member states to do whatever was necessary for voluntary relocation given the dire need.
    She also stressed that the EU had been reminded that the people in the Moria camp were fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, who already had very little and now almost nothing at all.
