star this property answer text <p>Frontex is an EU Agency charged with coordination of Member States resources to improve the security and surveillance of the external borders of the Schengen area. The effectiveness of Frontex is entirely reliant on the willingness of the Member States to make those resources available.</p><p> </p><p>Search and Rescue remains outside the competence of the EU or its Agencies, including Frontex.</p><p> </p><p>We expect the Member States to give a positive response to the request from Frontex for adequate resources to deliver the aims of Operation ‘Triton’. ‘Triton’ is a border management operation which operates closer to the European coast than the current Italian operation ‘Mare Nostrum’. However it will respond to any search and rescue emergency declared within reach of its maritime assets.</p><p><br><br></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government believes that the best way to help EU Member States who are experiencing high levels of illegal migration and asylum claims is through practical co-operation and support to build up their capacity so they can cope with the pressures on their system. We already provide such support and will continue to do so, both through the European Asylum Support Office and bilaterally. We are also working with EU partners to strengthen border security, improve cooperation with source and transit countries and tackle the organised criminal groups involved in people smuggling and human trafficking.</p><p>We do not agree that burden sharing in the sense of intra-EU relocation of asylum seekers or refugees as advocated by the countries referred to is the right solution: we believe that such measures would induce even more illegal migrants to risk their lives making the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean.</p><p> </p> more like this
