European Commission President Juncker: 'EU countries 'failed to deliver' on promises to resolve refugee crisis.


European Commission President Juncker: 'EU countries 'failed to deliver' on promises to resolve refugee crisis. (RT).

European Union member states have “failed to deliver” on efforts to resolve the refugee crisis, the head of the European Commission said on Friday, noting that the commission is not to blame for the current situation.
It is not the commission that has not delivered...but a number of member states [that] have failed to fully deliver on what we need to do and what needs to be done, Jean-Claude Juncker said during a press conference.

He went on to state that the EU Commission is “getting a little tired” of being blamed for not doing enough to resolve the refugee crisis.

So far, just 272 refugees have been moved to other countries out of the 160,000 that EU nations agreed to relocate, AFP reports. The relocation plan, aimed at moving asylum seekers from the frontline countries of Italy and Greece, was approved in October despite opposition from several Eastern European states.

Refusing to give up on the relocation scheme, Juncker warned that the EU is “moving toward a serious crisis in terms of credibility,” and urged member states to fulfill their legal and political responsibilities.

Although German Chancellor Angela Merkel has welcomed refugees into the country, other political leaders have fought back against her decision.

On Thursday, the head of a Bavarian district sent a bus with some 30 refugees to Merkel's Berlin office, stressing that his region – which has borne the brunt of the refugee influx – has reached its capacity. Hmmmm.........And still nobody of the EU Mentiones the Number of refugees they agreed upon to take in 2016. Read the full story here.
