Europe Plans to House an Additional 120,000 Refugees

Germany and France would take nearly half of the 120,000 refugees to be relocated from frontline states under a plan by European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, a European source said Monday.
According to Juncker’s proposal for mandatory quotas for EU states which is set to be unveiled Wednesday, Germany would take 31,443 and France 24,031, to relieve the burden on Greece, Italy and Hungary, the source says, AFP reported. Spain would take 14,931 under the plan, the source said. French President Francois Hollande confirmed in a press conference on Monday that France would take 24,000 refugees over two years. Juncker is due to formally announce his plan for the relocation of 120,000 refugees in his EU State of the Union speech on Wednesday.
