Icelandic Prime Minister Slams EU Open-Border Policy for Refugees

ABP –  Icelandic Prime Minister Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson

Iceland criticizes the European open-border policy and suggests limiting the flow of migrants to eligible asylum seekers coming from UN camps in the region.

“Having a controlled flow of refugees is a better option rather than having open borders, making it possible for those who qualified and cannot return home to come (to Europe) directly from the UN or other agencies’ refugee camps in the region,” Gunnlaugsson said.

At the same time, he noted that migrants who cannot be qualified as refugees “should be supported in the neighboring to Syria countries through education and health care, so they have a chance to rebuild Syria.”
