With most Member States having shown that relocation works if there is political will, the Commission is calling on those Member States who have not yet done so to take steps to comply with their legal obligations and contribute fairly and proportionally to the scheme.

The Commission is also making a renewed call to further accelerate the roll-out of the European Border and Coast Guard and to fill persistent gaps in manpower and equipment as swiftly as possible.

Continuous efforts are still needed to ensure the full implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement and in particular to improve the processing of asylum requests in Greece.
