CNA - Athena Arsalidou - Belgium/Brussels 08/11/2018 08:07

Cyprus, which has the highest number of first-time asylum applicants relative to its population, is particularly concerned with the issue but so far EU countries have not found common ground.

According to a competent source from Brussels, northern European countries are reluctant to share the burden with EU Mediterranean countries, which have been at the forefront for years.
