Denmark wants to stay out of EU asylum distribution plan

Current EU rules for asylum seekers, known as the Dublin System, state that refugees must apply for asylum in the first EU country they reach. This means that Denmark, which has legal exemption from Dublin but participates through a so-called ‘parallel agreement’, is able to send refugees back to other EU member countries that they have previously been to.
On Wednesday, the EU commission released details of a proposed reform to the Dublin System to cater for the hundreds of thousands of refugees currently arriving in the EU from crisis-torn countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
“I have not spoken to the commission today. But the commission is fully aware of Denmark’s position in this case,” integration minister Inger Støjberg told Politiken.
