[European Union] Bulgaria set to delay EU talks on refugee quotas

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''.
