Luxembourg fulfils commitments to Greece, Italy asylum seekers

Luxembourg has met its commitments to take asylum seekers from Greece and Italy by receiving 67 people in November and December, the government said late on Wednesday.

State officials met the people at Luxembourg airport, the government said in a statement.

“With these recent arrivals, Luxembourg has fulfilled all its commitments from both [European Union] member states,” the government said.

The Grand-Duchy pledged in September 2015 to take 557 asylum seekers from Greece and Italy.

Luxembourg’s Office for Recetpion and Integration will support the people in daily life and through the process of their applications for asylum.
