Stora diskussionens dag

Så börjar då en ny dag under min FN-vecka.

I dag är dagen då generaldebatten i generalförsamlingen inleds, och jag kommer att tillbringa förmiddagen där inte minst för möjligheten till olika informella samtal.

Innan dess har vi dock frukost med mina nordiska och baltiska kollegor. Det är alltid värdefullt att stämma av vårt agerande i olika frågor.

Annars blir detta en dag med möten om bl a Somalia och Burma.

Fredrik och jag kommer också gemensamt att möta Cyperns president Christofias.

Och i kväll – långt tills dess! – blir det informell middag med utrikesministrarna från G8-länderna.

Där blir det med all säkerhet fortsatt diskussion om situationen i Afghanistan och om den gemensamma politiken vad gäller Iran.

    Conservative MP Philip Davies was among those insisting that France should take proper responsibility for the immigrants on its shores rather than pass on the burden to “full-up’’ Britain – but he feared it would not.

    He said: “Asylum-seekers are supposed to be dealt with in the first place they come to. If France was fulfilling its international duties they would be dealing with these people.

    “It is totally irresponsible to be trying to pass them on to us. Obviously both the French government and the asylum-seekers know how soft we are and that once people are here, however bogus their claims, they will never be kicked out again.

    “But we’ve done more than our fair share. We can’t cope with the people we have. There is still a massive backlog of cases, people who have been here years. We need to put the ‘full’ sign up. France is a big enough country. They’ve got lots of room.” Richard Ashworth, Conservative MEP for South-east England, said: “It is now incumbent on the French to deal with illegal immigration at the point of entry and not simply funnel them through, creating this sorry bottleneck along the Pas de Calais and Normandy coasts.”

    Jag tror att det vore enklare om yal67 skapade sin egen blogg och sedan gav oss url-adressen.
