Norway plans to send migrants back to Eritrea before the end of 2015
Norway is negotiating a deal with Eritrean authorities to send migrants back to Eritrea, thelocal news agency reported on Monday.
Jøran Kallmyr, state secretary at the Ministry of Justice, plans a two-day visit to Eritrea soon to reach an agreement.
"If they have been refused a residence permit, it is likely that we can send them back before the end of 2015 if we reach a return agreement,” Kallmyr told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.
”We hope for two good days in Eritrea with great conversations. We expect that the Eritreans will increasingly comply with human rights.”
According to Norwegian media, Norway’s possible return agreement with Eritrea has had a huge psychological effect that has significantly dropped the number of Eritrean asylum seekers in the country.
Other European countries such as the United Kingdom, Denmark, Switzerland, and Netherlands are taking a similar approach to Norway.
