European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Friday, January 15, that the EU's efforts to redirect the refugees from Greece, Italy and other countries have been "a failure." At the moment, only 272 migrants of the planned 160 thousand moved out, he said.

Also, Juncker announced revision of the European legislation on refugees. According to him, in March 2016 the European Commission will present proposals to reform the Dublin agreement. "Dublin system definitely does not work" - said Juncker. According to him, every country should accept refugees. He stressed the need to create legal channels of entry for migrants. Juncker also warned against consequences of introduction of checks at internal borders of the EU, saying that without freedom of movement, "the euro makes no sense."

At the moment, the Dublin agreement determines that the request for asylum should be treated in a country where migrants cross the border first. In light of the flow of refugees increased in 2015, that provision, in fact, stopped working, since some countries at the external borders of the EU accounted for too much load on the reception of migrants.

Within the European Union’s programme for redistribution of refugees, around 160 thousand people who have fallen in Italy and Greece should be sent to various European countries. They planned to be resettled to all the EU countries according to the quotas for each state; the programme started in autumn 2015.
