Minister criticises EU on refugees

The EU is taking too long to reach a joint agreement on taking care of several thousands of extremely vulnerable refugees such as single mothers, junior justice minister Nebahat Albayrak said on Friday.

The EU has agreed to take 7,500 of the 150,000 refugees identified as vulnerable by the UN. Some 500 will come to the Netherlands.
