States can decide migrant quotas with restrictions, sources

Draft EU document tries to overcome conflicts among members

(ANSA) - Brussels, June 22 - A draft document on the re-settlement of 40,000 refugees in Europe says that member States can decide the distribution among themselves but with a time restriction of one month, sources told ANSA.
    "All States will decide by the end of July on the distribution," says the draft prepared for a summit of European Union leaders set for Thursday and Friday.
    The draft aims to overcome conflicts among members over who would set quotas and at what levels among member States for accepting refugees.
    Some balked at being ordered to accept a set number of refugees. Sources said this approach, with the one-month deadline, should be better accepted.
