Spanish EU Presidency: Frontex Needs More Resources and Clearer Rules

Spanish Interior Minister Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba speaking at the 26th Frontex Management Board Meeting in Madrid called for providing Frontex with “more resources, clearer rules and specialist offices. … We are planning to promote FRONTEX, to equip it with more resources, its own resources, because when FRONTEX becomes more independent it will become more efficient; to provide it with mechanisms for jointly managing maritime operations, mechanisms that respect the laws and rights and clearly establish each country’s obligations. … FRONTEX has shown that it is probably the best tool we have for ensuring shared and jointly responsible border control.”
