Out of obligation and not conviction, says minister

    (ANSAmed) - BRUSSELS, MARCH 27 - Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka announced on Monday that Austria would begin relocation of asylum seekers from Italy and Greece, but out of obligation and not conviction.

    ''We are beginning the process,'' he said on entering an EU Council meeting, especially because there is no way to get an extension to the exception to the transfers granted to Vienna. ''Personally,'' Sobotka added, ''I do not agree with the asylum seekers redistribution system, since I believe that it constitutes an attraction'' for illegal migration. In recent days, Austrian defense minister Hans Peter Doskozil (SPO) said that he was against the sending of refugees from Italy to Austria. (ANSAmed).
