The Norwegian government refuses to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees.
The government parties, the Conservatives and the Progress Party, are not going to succumb to the requirement from the opposition to accept 10,000 quota refugees from Syria.
On Tuesday afternoon the government parties and the opposition gather in negotiations in Parliament where the topic is Syria refugees. A united opposition has demanded 10,000 Syria refugees to Norway over the next two years, but the government resists.
- 10,000? Just forget it's, says a centrally placed source in the government to the newspaper Aftenposten.
The Conservatives and the Progress Party's position is that Norway does not have the capacity to accommodate more than 2,120 refugees, among them 1,500 from Syria, which has already been decided upon. Any more is out of the question.
- The government parties will argue that it is practically difficult or almost impossible to take any more this year. However the government parties may be willing to negotiate a smaller increase of this figure in 2016, the newspaper said.
