German Chancellor Angela Merkel has concluded agreements with 14 countries to speed up the procedure for the return of migrants trying to enter Germany. This is reported by dpa.international.
Merkel revealed details of the agreement in a letter to the leaders of the two parties - the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) and the Christian Social Union (CSU).
"Asylum seekers arriving in Germany who have already registered in other EU countries must be taken to larger 'anchor centers' for registration," the report said.
These are countries such as Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Hungary, Finland, France, Czech Republic, Sweden.
The head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said that after the night talks, the EU countries agreed on a unified policy on refugees. According to the source, the camps for refugees rescued after crossing the sea will be created in the member countries of the European Union, which will agree to this.
Earlier German Chancellor Angela Merkel wanted to hold an emergency summit on the migration crisis in Europe.
Earlier media reported that the government of Merkel split due to the disagreements between the Chancellor of Germany and her coalition allies from the Christian-Social Union (CSU) on the migration policy of Germany.
As noted, further escalation may lead to the resignation of Merkel.
Earlier Angela Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, stated that the G7 member states would discuss the questions of Russia’s returning to this summit format only after a “substantial progress” concerning the issues in Ukraine is reached, as Reuters reports.
“Here we all agreed that a return of Russia to the G7-format summits can’t happen until substantial progress has been made in connection with the problems with Ukraine,” she said.
She stressed that that was “the common view”.
