Switzerland ‘ready’ to void EU trade and travel treaties with new law capping migration

Switzerland says it will risk the legal collapse of its trade, security and free travel agreements with the EU, if Brussels cannot stop uncontrolled migration into the country. The government is preparing a law that will impose quotas for incomers, starting from 2017.

“If there is really no solution, we would be ready for a suspension of a part or all of the bilateral agreements,” said Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter, referring to the EU’s struggle to control the inflow of unregistered migrants, which will exceed 1 million by the end of 2015.
