Will all EU countries participate?

What EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced in the run-up to a new migration pact would be a revolution.

  • EU Commission President

    Ursula von der Leyen

    wants to

    abolish

    the

    Dublin Regulation

    .

  • She calls for a new European system for managing

    migration

    .

  • So far the project has

    failed due

    to the issue of the

    distribution of refugees

    .

Brussels -

Chancellor Angela Merkel * (CDU *)

is reportedly dissatisfied with the EU's migration policy - especially after she and

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU *) announced

after the devastating fire in the Greek camp Moria * that Germany would have more than 1,500 refugees and there was sometimes harsh criticism.

Now EU Commission President

Ursula von der Leyen

wants to

throw

the current regulations overboard for

the planned

asylum reform

.

"We will abolish the Dublin regulation,"

said von der Leyen in front of the European Parliament on Wednesday.

"We will replace it with a new European migration management system." This will have "common structures for asylum and repatriation" and

contain

"a new strong solidarity mechanism"

.

Refugee debate after Moria fire: Von der Leyen declares saving lives at sea "not optional"

The

EU Commission

wants to present a

proposal

for a

“new pact on migration”

on Wednesday

.

Von der Leyen tweeted on the subject: "Saving lives at sea is not optional and countries that fulfill their legal and moral obligations must be able to rely on the solidarity of the entire EU."

Next week, we will put forward the New Pact on Migration.

We'll take a human & humane approach.

Saving lives at sea is not optional & those countries who fulfill their legal and moral duties or are more exposed than others, must be able to rely on the solidarity of our whole EU.

Moria Inferno aggravates the refugee question: Von der Leyen wants to abolish Dublin rules

The current

Dublin rules

stipulate that the EU country in which a refugee

first

enters European soil

is responsible for asylum applications

.

This meant that countries on the

external borders of

the Union were completely

overburdened

during the refugee crisis

and then often allowed migrants to travel on to other EU countries.

Since then, the EU has been striving to reform its asylum system.

All attempts so far had failed because of the question of the

distribution of refugees

.

Eastern European

governments in

particular

categorically

reject the admission of migrants

in order to relieve main countries of arrival at the EU's external borders such as Greece or Italy.
