Europe needs a totally new policy in the area of migration and asylums, said Vice President Iliana Yotova during a Sofia-held discussion on the future of the EU. She underlined that the policy of quota distribution of the migrants coming to Europe didn’t work. Yotova stated that the European institutions should reconsider the migration agreement with Turkey. In her words this half-agreement obviously doesn’t solve the overall problem with migration. At the same time the proposals for changes in the Dublin Regulation once again would place EU external borders’ countries, such as Bulgaria in a really vulnerable situation, the vice president further said.
