Switzerland Opens Its Borders For More Syrian Refugees

DSC_1551_edited-1Switzerland had decided to take 3,000 Syrian refugees in addition to the 10,000 already settled in the country said President Simonetta Sommaruga during a press conference held at Hofburg after a meeting with her Austrian counterpart, President Dr. Heinz Fischer in Vienna

President Sommaruga said on Wednesday May 6 2015 that Switzerland is willing to adopt an EU migration proposal which currently debated by Brussels for allowing more distribution asylum seekers to live across the EU. She added: “It is high time for Europe to have a distribution ratio based on solidarity”

Sommaruga stated: “Switzerland will join the EU proposal” saying that more can be done for the thousands of refugees trying to reach Europe’s southern shores by boat.

On April 21st 2015, EU-commission president Jean-Claude Juncker visited Austria and stated that Malta, Italy, Cyprus and Greece should not be the only home and solution for the immigrants and the EU countries must work together to solve the problem.

The European Commission, the EU executive, is due on May 13 to present a migration policy that will include proposals to make legal economic immigration to the EU easier, and to set refugee quotas for all member states.

About 1,200 illegal migrants were died in the Mediterranean last month.

    One has to admire Switzerland for not joining NATO or other criminal organisations.
    It was only recently I discovered that the Allies bombed various Swiss cities during WWII.
    Of course the Allies then went on to charge various Germans with war-crimes at Nuremberg.
