At the meeting in Berlin, the chancellors of Germany and Austria discussed the migration policy of the European Union.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Angela Merkel) on Tuesday, June 12, held a meeting with Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurtz. The parties discussed the migration policy of the European Union. According to the participants, a key step is better protection of the external borders of the EU, according to dw.com.
The reason for the meeting was the request of one of the ruling parties — the Christian social Union not to accept Germany received registration in other States of refugees, which is contained in the plan of the Minister of internal Affairs of Germany Horst Seehofer (Horst Seehofer) about the new policy towards refugees. According to Merkel, is unacceptable “to place the responsibility on the countries to which refugees arrive”. The Chancellor stressed the support of the previous proposals Seehofer on the reform in the field of migration.
In the course significantly increased in 2015, the flow of migrants a number of members of the EU, which took the main flow of refugees, are unable to cope with it. The result is that migrants without proper documents come from States where they first stepped on the land of the EU, in other EU countries.
According to the Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, this situation “does not meet the requirements of the Dublin regulation”, which determines which EU country should be considered requests for asylum. The current practice must cease, says Kurtz.
