The French authorities are preparing to build a new refugee camp for up to 1.5 thousand people. Construction of the complex near Calais is planned to begin in 2016, reports The Local.

The European Commission will allocate additional five million euros to carry out the work - this was announced by French vice chairman Frans Timmermans at a joint press conference with French Prime Minister Manuel Waltz.

The new camp will have 120 tents, each of which can accommodate up to 12 people. It will replace the existing complex, which is recognized as one of the worst in the world because of the lack of toilets and lack of water. Waltz said that its creation would allow France to solve the problem of migrants “firmly, responsibly and humanely.”

Calais has become an attractive city for immigrants because of its proximity to the Eurotunnel, which connects the continental Europe with the United Kingdom. Currently, the city harbors more than five thousand illegal migrants seeking to get to Britain to obtain refugee status and the right to financial aid.

Paris blames London that the city itself indulges such an influx of illegal migrants: currently in the UK, it is easier for people without documents to settle down and get a job comparing to France and most other EU countries. This is obliged to the fact that there are no national identity cards in the UK, which are usually required to work in Europe.
 
Recently, due to the unstable situation in Africa and the Middle East, an increasing number of migrants comes to the European countries. According to the plan proposed by the European Commission, the refugees must be shared by the EU countries in proportion to their population, economy, standard of living and other factors. For example, France will need to place 14.7 percent of refugees, Germany - 18.42 percent. Altogether, EU states have agreed to host 32 thousand migrants within two years.
