The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was approved in July by all United Nations members except USA . It is because of the huge influx of migrants in the recent past due to conflicts, civil war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and beyond. The non-binding UN pact addresses issues such as how to protect people who migrate, how to integrate them into new countries and how to return them to their home countries. Many European Union countries have refused to sign the UN pact which includes Bulgaria. Austria, Hungary and Czech among others. These countries are refusing to sign the pact because they are favouring the principle of separating legal and illegal migration.
