EU to issue new immigration policy proposals by October
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.
