BRUSSELS – Rome II (European Union) interior ministers meeting in Brussels have approved a plan to relocate 120,000 migrants across Europe.
Some countries were opposed, the Twitter post from the Luxembourg mission to the European Union indicated. It said the decision was adopted by a “large majority” of the EU’s 28 member states, without naming the opponents.
Some countries in Eastern Europe have resisted accepting the forced resettlement of refugees on their territory.
Luxembourg currently holds the rotating presidency of the Rome II (EU), and presided over Tuesday’s meeting of interior and justice ministers in Brussels.
