Sweden’s Finance Minister says some of the SEK 11 billion aid budget could be used to help the Migration Board handle asylum seekers in Sweden.

Anders Borg says that the amount of funding Sweden gives to the United Nations will be lowered, according to Swedish Radio News.

Borg adds that aid money is the responsibility of the Development Aid Minister Gunilla Carlsson and he would rather leave the details to her.

While Gunilla Carlsson could not be reached, she had said earlier in 2012 to Swedish News that she would hope that these funds would instead go to Swedish refugees since they are considered to be within the same aid budget.

“These refugees who come to Sweden looking for safety here are considered a part of our Developmental Aid budget. I’m glad we can divert funds to this area when needed," says Carlsson.
