Final steps towards a Common European Asylum System
EU News 277/2013
Council of the European Union
Luxembourg, 7 June 2013
The Council adopted its positions at first reading on the recast of three important legal instruments with a view to fulfilling the commitment of the European Council to establish a Common European Asylum System. The three recast proposals are: the reception conditions directive, the Dublin regulation and the asylum procedures directive.
Given the agreement reached in the trilogue meetings between both co-legislators, the European Parliament is expected to approve at the next plenary session (10-13 June) the three Council's positions at first reading without amendments ("early second reading agreement"). The three legal acts will be then formally adopted.
