Extracts from the press conference by Cecilia Malmström on her trip to Egypt
Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, held a press conference on 24 March 2011 in Brussels to present the outcome of her trip to Egypt.
She discussed with the Egyptian authorities the possibility of establishing a partnership on mobility in areas like asylum, migration and border control.
She also expressed her concern about the situation of third country nationals who are stuck at the borders because they have nowhere to go. She asked the Egyptian authorities to let these people enter Egypt and announced that she would organise a meeting to discuss their possible relocation in Europe. SHOTLIST
