EU Council of Justice and Home Affairs to focus on security

The European Commission’s proposal to create a European Information System and Travel Licence, a European passenger name record and the fight against terrorism will dominate the EU Council of Justice and Home Affairs to be held on Friday in Brussels.

Greece is represented by Migration Policy Minister Yannis Mouzalas.

“The issues of the agenda have to do with the security. The European citizens are right to ask for more security,” EU Commissioner for Migration Issues Dimitris Avramopoulos said.

Avramopoulos will present the Commission’s proposals on the new travel document (ETIAS) explaining that this proposal responds to European citizens’ demand for more security. “Not only security is safeguarded, but travelling will become safer,” he said adding that “security is of utmost importance and tops our priorities.”
