The European Union's migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos has warned that it would be unacceptable for countries to refuse proposed refugee sharing quotas.

In an interview with AFP, he said the agreement on refugees' quotas is likely to be reached by June this year, despite longstanding opposition from eastern European states.

Meanwhile, EU interior ministers meet in Sofia tomorrow to discuss reforms regarding asylum.
