Vice President of Parliament’s Grand Committee Tytti Tuppurainen (SDP) criticizes the sharp comments of Foreign Minister Timo Soini on the internal transfers of asylum seekers in the EU. Soini said on Monday at the Foreign Ministers’ meeting that Finland will not accept new decisions on the transfer of asylum seekers before all countries have fulfilled their old obligations. According to Tuppurainen, Soini endangers Finland’s solution-seeking EU policy. « It is undoubtedly a problem that not all member states have been involved in the burden sharing. However, the problems are not solved by the fact that the countries that have hitherto acted responsibly are now hitting a full brake », Tuppurainen tells STT.
