EU Countries Oppose Migrants Quotas

Ten from 28 EU member states announced that they are against the offer of the European Commission on imposing quotas for the EU member states to receive illegal migrants from the third countries, RIA Novosti reports.

"The United Kingdom, France, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania oppose the offer",- the agency source reported.

According to the new EU Migration Strategy, in order to reduce tensions in the southern states of the EU, which are the first entry of the migrants coming mainly from the African countries, Commission proposed a new quotas strategy. 20 thousand migrants coming from the third countries will be distributed to all the member states of the Union, taking into consideration the GDP, population, unemployment rate of the state.
