In the draft resolution, before paragraph 9.1.1, insert the following paragraph:
"provide countries beyond EU's eastern borders with concrete assistance programmes for burden-sharing, including financial and cost-sharing schemes;"
The EU's current policy of externalizing irregular immigration and asylum shifts significantly the burden to countries beyond the eastern borders of the EU, particulary Turkey. Therefore, the EU should support the countries concerned with concrete assistance to ensure a fair burden-sharing of the migratory pressures.
