Gentiloni calls for European asylum rights (2)

Otherwise 'we risk a lot on Schengen'

(ANSA) - Luxembourg, September 4 - Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni said Friday that "we have to move towards joint European asylum rights: it won't be simple, but if we don't do it and we leave each country to deal with the problems, I think we risk a lot regarding (the) Schengen (free movement accords)".
    He said the principle where asylum is granted by the country of arrival must be overcome. At present that principle is enshrined in the Dublin regulation, which many EU members want to see changed.
