Överenskommelse om EU:s nya asylbyrå


Europaparlamentet och medlemsländernas regeringar har nått en preliminär överenskommelse om EU:s nya asylbyrå. Europaparlamentets huvudförhandlare Elena Yoncheva (Soc&Dem) håller presskonferensens kl. 15.30.

Den nya förordningen omvandlar det befintliga Europeiska stödkontoret för asylfrågor (Easo) till en fullfjädrad asylbyrå. Byrån ska underlätta det gemensamma asylsystemets funktion och trygga att bedömningen av asylansökningar sker konsekvent inom EU.

Europaparlamentariker Tomas Tobé (M) har företrätt EPP-gruppen i förhandlingarna.
