The European Union continued to be divided Monday over whether to set up joint border patrols to protect its vast frontiers—and how far to go in building a common asylum system. 

Ministers did agree the bloc should help African and Asian states protect refugees from their region and stem the flow of illegal migration to Europe. 

While refugee rights groups and the UN fear such proposals would mean the EU is shying away from its responsibility to take in asylum seekers, Sweden’s Immigration Minister Barbro Holmberg said:  the proposals would mean more aid to poor developing countries. 

A final asylum plan will be presented to EU leaders at their November 5th summit.
