The European Union will issue new immigration policy proposals by the end of October, Sweden's Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said on Sunday.
"We will have a first proposal from the EU with regard to distribution criteria for immigration flows among the 27 (EU member states)," Bildt said on the sidelines of a conference at the Italian seaside town of Rimini.
Bildt said the European Commission would issue a policy draft in time for a scheduled EU foreign ministers meeting at the end of October.
This would only be a first step, he said, since "such a big problem cannot be solved in a single meeting". Sweden assumed the 6-month EU presidency in July.
