    On Friday the Danish leader said no future asylum applications lodged in Denmark was her declared ambition, maintaining the course of a very restrictive reception policy at a time when the country has received the lowest number of applications since 1998, according to Swiss daily La Tribune de Genève.

    The small Nordic country of 5,8 million inhabitants has been discouraging migrants from coming for a while now. “We have to make sure that few people come to our country, otherwise our social cohesion cannot prevail,” explained Frederiksen.

    ‘We cannot promise zero asylum seekers, but we can explain our vision well,” Frederiksen said during a question-and-answer session in parliament.

    In 2020, some 1 547 migrants applied for asylum in Denmark, the lowest figure since 1998, which is mainly explained by the health crisis linked to the pandemic of the new Coronavirus.

    This is more than ten times less than in 2015, in the heart of the migrant crisis, where some 21 300 people applied – almost eight times less than in neighboring Sweden.

    In 2017, then at the head of the Social Democrats, she presented a plan to send “non-Western” migrants back to African camps, to holding facilities for migrants.

    In September, Copenhagen appointed a migration ambassador to speed up the creation of one or more migrant camps outside the European Union as part of the new European asylum system, which it has been advocating.

    • It’s refreshing to hear a western politician speak of social cohesion. I am sure that in the UK social cohesion has never been given even a passing consideration by the government. In this the Saudis were much smarter. They say that social cohesion and the possibility of civil strain in their country was the reason why they would not take in thousands of refugees and economic migrants. Although they were Muslims, they were not Gulf Arab Muslims and would not know how to behave and conduct themselves as such. Many of them were politicized, and had affiliation to various political parties, associations and unions, who are quick to take to the streets to demand their rights. This would not be tolerated in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf States, so the wisest policy was to keep the out.
