Filippo Grandi quotes

If Europe were to welcome the same percentage of refugees as Lebanon in comparison to its population, it would have to take in 100 million refugees.

As a first reaction I'm deeply concerned about any arrangement that would involve the blanket return of anyone from one country to another without spelling out the refugee protection safeguards under international law. An asylum seeker should only be returned to a 3rd state if the responsibility for assessing the particular asylum application in substance is assumed by the 3rd country.

We disagree with these measures and call once again for cooperation. The problem is we have called for cooperation for a long time now and we don't get a response. So we need to find a convincing way to do it.

If you block it and you don't create well managed openings like relocation, like resettlement from Turkey, then the problem becomes very serious because it will fuel new rings, new (smuggling) networks.
