National Coalition Party’s Mykkänen on Yle: Number of quota refugees could be increased


Finland is hosting an international summit on Syria at the beginning of next year. Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen says that if the summit is a success it can be a major step forward. At the summit, new UN plans on aid for Syria will be published and it will also be possible to negotiate new arrangements for receiving and transferring refugees. Mr Mykkänen states as his personal opinion that Finland could accept more quota refugees in the future. He says the general trend in asylum policy in Europe should be turned in the direction of taking refugees directly from refugee camps and thus controlling illegal entry.
