Cyprus Internet Directory [ EU – IMMIGRANTS ]


Cypriot Minister of Interior Christos Patsalides said that countries neighbouring with the EU, countries that have the candidate status, such as Turkey or aspire to have closer ties with the Union, should realize they have the responsibility to sign treaties for the reentry of immigrants with the EU.

Speaking to the EU Justice and Home Affairs Council that took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, holder of the EU presidency, Patsalides reiterated his call for a common policy on the issue of immigration.

Referring to a recent agreement between Libya and Italy for joint sea patrols, Patsalides said that such agreements in the future should be the result of European Convention with third states and not of bilateral agreements of EU member states and third states

He further explained that the aim of this is such issues ``relating to illegal immigration would be included in the EU foreign policy, something which would significantly assist smaller member-states, which do not have important political weight and capabilities.``

Cyprus ranks first in the EU, regarding asylum applications compared to its population, Patsalides said.

``Therefore Cyprus supports the creation of a European support office since this would assist all member-states and especially the member-states considered as ``first-stop`` which face the strongest pressure,`` he added.
