Nope: Norway rejects UNHCR's refugee request
Norway's Minister for Immigration, Sylvi Listhaug, makes it clear that Norway will not receive more quota refugees.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) recently asked for help to extract 40,000 additional quota refugees from Libya and other African countries.

In a letter sent to the Norwegian immigration minister, EU's immigration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos writes that he fully supports the initiative of bringing 40,000 additional quota refugees from Africa. He also urges the Norwegian minister to be "as ambitious as possible".

But in an e-mail to ABC Nyheter, Listhaug writes that it is not an option for Norway to accept more quota refugees.

- It is not possible to receive more refugees now. Norway is among the countries that have received most quota refugees in relation to population, she writes.

Not really refugees

Avramopoulos admits that the majority of those who come to Europe across the central Mediterranean are not in need of protection. The largest groups are migrants from countries such as Nigeria, Guinea and Bangladesh.

- But we have a legal and moral duty to offer protection to those who really need it, the EU Commissioner writes.

However, according to Listhaug, Norway is full.
