MEPs to debate EU's border and asylum agencies

Parliament will discuss the roles, resources and capabilities of the EU border agency Frontex and the European Asylum Support Office with the Latvian Secretary of State for European affairs, Zanda Kalniņa-Lukaševica, and the First Vice-President of the Commission, Frans Timmermans, on Wednesday evening.

Tackling the tragic situation in the Mediterranean, improving the management of migration flows prompted by a mix of motives, ensuring the surveillance of the EU's external borders, rescuing migrants in distress at sea and supporting EU countries whose asylum and reception systems are under particular pressure are among the issues at stake.
