GENEVA, September 14. /TASS/. Europe’s comprehensive response to the massive flow of refugees and migrants should be based on establishing effective reception centers, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has said.
"This response must be based on creation of effective reception centers, with the support of all parties concerned including UNHCR, to properly assist, register and screen people upon arrival in Greece, Italy and Hungary," the UNHCR said in a statement ahead Monday’s EU Council of Interior Ministers meeting in Brussels.
The UNHCR also called for rapid implementation of a relocation program as proposed by the European Commission. "People in need of international protection in accordance with international law should be relocated amongst all European Union countries based on a fair distribution mechanism," it said.
The UN Refugee Agency said it is concerned that "the combination of different, individual measures might create a situation where large numbers of refugees seeking in Europe the protection they are entitled to receive in line with international law, will find themselves moving around in legal limbo."
Therefore, the decisions of Monday’s European Council of Ministers of the Interior "are even more critical," it said.
On Sunday, Germany temporarily introduced controls along its border with Austria. The measure came to prevent the flow of migrants into the country. The European Commission said this is envisaged by the Schengen Borders Code in case of a crisis situation.
