Back from Luxembourg

10 June 2011

A long Justice and Home Affairs Council in Luxembourg is over. EU Commissioner for Home Affairs concluded that discussions were constructive but sometimes difficult, and is glad that Member States agreed on continuing negotiations on the asylum package with the aim of reaching an agreement as planned in 2012.

On the agenda were the migration package that the Commission put forward in the beginning of May, the situation in North Africa, the asylum package, Schengen, visa issues, labour migration, and the fight against terrorism.

More details can be found in the press material provided by Council secretariat and by watching yesterday's press conference.
