'Enforcing refugee reception'
'We thoroughly agree that the EU should take on its role by playing a role in the entire process of migrants, including at the countries of origin,' Minister Blok said yesterday after his talks in Rome. 'Through economic support, opening up our markets, helping those countries build up border control and the rule of law as in Niger and Mali. Trafficking in human beings must be tackled, especially in Libya, and joint European border surveillance must be improved together. Next, we must ensure that in every country where people arrive, as we do in Ter Apel, a good selection takes place whereby some people receive protection and others who do not meet the criteria have to go back. We agreed that this should be the approach ', says Blok.
