Merkel, ‘there is no EU immigration policy today’ – Ultima Ora


(ANSA) – BERLIN, SEPTEMBER 10 – “We cannot be satisfied with the European migration policy. In practice, it does not exist today and it is a heavy burden for Europe”: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it bluntly in a meeting with EPP President Donald Tusk at the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin, commenting on his decision and the French President Emmanuel Macron’s decision to welcome 400 unaccompanied minors from the Moria camp, on the Greek island of Lesbos.

Merkel also announced her intention to move forward on this issue during the German presidency semester. The Chancellor then clarified that the decision to welcome the minors from the Moria camp started from a telephone request from the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
