STRASBOURG, May 18 (Xinhua) -- Members of European Parliament (MEPs) have condemned a lack of action from European Union (EU) member states in relocation of 160,000 refugees in a resolution adopted Thursday in Strasbourg.
Adopted by 398 votes in favor to 134 against, with 41 abstentions Customized Liverpool Jersey UK , the resolution strongly denounces that, despite having committed to moving the refugees from Greece and Italy by September 2017, EU member states have only relocated 11 percent of agreed upon number (18,770 as of May 16).
The summer of 2015's unexpected spike in arrivals of asylum seekers saw the EU adopt emergency measures to relocate 160,000 migrants from the two front-line nations, but European unity has not been forthcoming since the agreement.
In their non-binding resolution Xherdan Shaqiri Jersey UK , MEPs shared their disappointment in the lack of solidarity and responsibility-sharing. They also urged EU nations to honor their commitments and prioritize the relocation of unaccompanied children, often the most vulnerable members of the refugee population. The text points out that "only one unaccompanied minor was relocated so far."
A number of states were criticized by MEPs for "very restrictive and discriminatory preferences, such as granting relocation only to single mothers or excluding applicants from specific nationalities, such as Eritreans, and applying extensive security checks."
As of Thursday, only two EU countries are on track to meet their relocation targets Kamil Grabara Jersey UK , Malta and Finland. Meanwhile, four countries have only been relocating refugees on an extremely limited basis, and two countries have not been participating at all.
In a Tuesday debate that proceeded the adoption of the resolution, MEPs condemned the lack of political willpower that has led to the current situation.
Jeroen Lenaers (European People's Party, Netherlands) said that he had "never been in favour of compulsory quotas but over the past one and a half years we have seen that the voluntary system is not working."
Angelika Mlinar (Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, Austria) said: "It is not a question of ability Rafael Camacho Jersey UK , but of willpower. It's high time for member states to follow through on the commitments they entered into." She compared the efforts made by the EU with those of countries such Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey where millions of refugees have been accommodated.
"It is not an issue of capacity, it is purely down to a scandalous lack of political will," said Ska Keller (GreensEFA, Germany), welcoming news from European Migratio.
