Bulgaria, Hungary Granted Exemption from Migrants' Relocation

Bulgaria, Hungary Granted Exemption from Migrants' Relocation

Hungary and "to a certain extent Bulgaria" will be treated as "special cases" when it comes to migrant relocation, European Council Donald Tusk has said.
His comments followed a move by EU leaders to agree at a late-night summit on the relocation, short of adopting quotas.
As many as 40 000 asylum seekers will be relocated across the EU from Italy and Greece in two years. Another 20 000 will be resettled.
This comes after the failure of EU heads of government taking part in a European Council meeting Thursday and Friday, with Council President Donald Tusk warning there is "lack of consensus" on the issue.
States will have the option to voluntarily receive asylum seekers, but specific conditions in Bulgaria and Hungary allow them to have their own stand.
