EU to propose asylum camps in border countries

1:43 min

The European Commission wants a new migration system for the EU, and Swedish Radio News understands that one of the proposals will be building asylum centres at the edges of the EU so people can be accepted or rejected faster.

The person in charge of this project is commissioner Ylva Johansson from Sweden. She has confirmed that the proposal means the responsibilities of "front line countries" like Greece and Italy will change.

She also warns that no country will be happy with the final outcome.

She told a press conference on Wednesday that her impression from her talks is that she has 27 member states that are ready and willing to compromise, reports EU Observer.

Ylva Johnasson will unveil the full proposals next Wednesday, the 23rd September.
