11 May, 13:43

    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, MAY 11 - France considers "an allocation of migrant-quotas among different EU countries" "normal" said French Minister of the Interior Bernard Cazeneuve during an interview broadcast on radio RTL. The minister talked about the quota-system for asylum-seekers the EU is aiming to introduce and stressed that "these proposals are partially drawn from proposals formulated by France in August".

    Europe - added Cazeneuve "must do what it can to save lives", in particular strengthening the Frontex system tasked with managing external borders: "we have to work with the countries of origin in order to distinguish between unlawful migrants and asylum seekers". The French Senate will debate a bill seeking to reform the right of asylum today. "All of those who qualify for asylum must be accepted - said Cazeneuve - those who do not will be accompanied to the border".(ANSAmed).
