In the public domain appeared a document in which the European Commission assesses the current situation with refugees in the European Union, and suggests further actions of countries authorities outside the EU and hosting refugees.


In particular, document says:


«The unprecedented flow of refugees and migrants along the Eastern Mediterranean-Western Balkans route is a challenge that will not be solved through national actions alone.  Unilateral action may trigger a chain reaction. Countries affected should therefore talk to each other. This is the only way to restore stability to the management of migration in the region, ease the pressure on the over-stretched capacity of the countries most affected, and to slow down the flows.


Migrants who are not in need of international protection should be swiftly returned to their countries of origin».






The document emphasizes: a country may refuse entry to third country nationals who, when presenting themselves at border crossing points, do not confirm a wish to apply for international protection.
