The next four months Norway will receive 218 Syrians a month, according to a preliminary EU memorandum on the distribution of the Syrian refugees that will be brough from Turkey.
This means that Norway will be the country that will accept the largest number of Syrians, according to the memorandum that the German news agency DPA have gotten hold of.
The EU Ministers of Interior were assembled on Thursday to review the agreement with Turkey giving the EU an opportunity to return refugees and migrants arriving by sea to Greece, upon bringing one Syrian refugee to their countries for every Syrian who are returned. The agreement applies up to 72,000 refugees.
The next four months a total of 4,488 Syrians will be brought to EU countries and other countries who have entered into an agreement with EU on this, according to the preliminary allocation plan. Of those Syrians, Norway will accept 218 a month, while France will get 148 a month, Italy 118 and Germany 100.
The Department of Justice could not confirm these numbers to the news agency NTB on Thursday night,
