Joint press conference by Dimitris Avramopoulos and Julian King, Members of the EC, on the 12th relocation and resettlement progress report and on the 7th Security Union progress report
On 16 May 2017, Dimitris Avramopoulos, Member of the EC in charge of Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, and Julian King, Member of the EC in charge of the Security Union, gave a joint press conference, in Strasbourg, on the 12th progress report on the EU's emergency relocation and resettlement schemes, assessing actions taken since 12 April 2017, and on the 7th report on progress made towards an effective and genuine Security Union. As a result of the increased efforts of Member States, the number of persons relocated so far in 2017 was almost as many as in the whole of 2016. The total number of relocations stood at 18,418, proving that relocation worked if there was the will to abide by what was agreed together in a spirit of sincere cooperation. However, whilst most Member States were active and relocate regularly, some had still not relocated at all, disregarding their legal obligation. On resettlement, Members States continued to make significant progress, with safe and legal pathways being provided to 16,163 persons so far, beyond two thirds of the agreed resettlements under the EU scheme. In addition to providing an update on progress made on key files, the 7th Security Union progress report focused on the ongoing work to improve information management for borders and security and set out the EC's new approach towards achieving the interoperability of EU information systems for security, border and migration management by 2020. Following the global cyberattack, the report also stressed the EC's commitment to accelerate work to review the 2013 EU Cybersecurity Strategy in order to provide an effective response to cyber threats. At the end of the press conference Dimitris Avramopoulos and Julian King answered the journalists' questions.
