Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Lithuania is "not enthusiastic" about the European Commission's proposal to introduce quotas for EU member states to accept a certain number of migrants from Africa, the country's Permanent Representative to the EU Raimundas Karoblis says.
Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevičius says he does not know how many immigrants Lithuania could accept if the European Commission's plan on migration quotas is implemented. According to the prime minister, immigrants have a huge effect on a country's economy.
Kęstutis Lančinskas, a former Vilnius police chief and currently the head of the European Union's advisory mission in Ukraine (EUAM), is seeking the job of director at Europe's police agency Europol, several sources have confirmed to BNS.
