The top U.N. official for refugees Tuesday urged the European Union to consider imposing a quota system to force its nations to more equitably handle a spike in asylum-seekers, spurred by the wars in Syria and Iraq."We are ready to support political initiatives within Europe, for instance, aiming in some situations to have forms of quota distribution," Antonio Guterres, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees said.He said that while asylum-seekers generally enter Europe through Greece and Italy, nearly half of all asylum requests last year were presented in Germany and Sweden, a sign of lopsided distribution.Sweden receives the highest number of refugees per capita in the EU and is second only to Germany as a destination for Syrians fleeing the four-year war in their home country.
