Denmark will open an office in Rwanda as the Nordic country seeks to set up an asylum center outside of the European Union to reduce the number people seeking refuge.

The office, which will be manned by two diplomats, will be based in the capital of Kigali, the Danish foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
