Danish government eyes Rwanda and Egypt after dropping plans for asylum centre in Ethiopia 

According to the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, the ongoing conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray province has led Denmark to remove the country from the list of potential sites for its planned overseas asylum processing centre. 

Immigration minister Mattias Tesfaye recently informed other political parties in Denmark about the decision, the newspaper claimed. 

According to the newspaper, Egypt and Rwanda are still being considered as host countries, with Danish officials shortly to make a second visit to the latter country, 

“The ministry can confirm that there is an ongoing dialogue with Rwanda, including in the form of official trips to the country,” the ministry wrote in a statement.
