The EU Observer reports that ''The EU presidency under Bulgaria appears likely to wait until the very end of negotiations before broaching the controversial refugee quota issue in a key EU asylum reform bill.

The six-month presidency is mandated to find a political consensus by the end of June on the 'Dublin' regulation, which determines who is responsible for processing asylum claims.

A consensus appears to be emerging following German demands to first sort out the easier points under the reform before tackling the most difficult one''.
