Former UK security minister: Britain will select refugees from regional camps

British officials will travel to Syrian refugee camps in the Middle East and choose refugees for relocation to the UK, in accordance with security considerations, the former minister of state for security and counter terrorism, Baroness Pauline Neville- Jones, said on Tuesday during a security conference in Israel.

Britain has not given up absolute control over its national borders, Neville-Jones said, speaking at the International Institute For Counter- Terrorism’s 15th international conference at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya.

To avoid further migration to Europe, Britain will select refugees directly from Middle East camps, she said. Britain will decide who enters its borders, she said, adding that London will act to prevent the formation of a “fifth column” within.
