  • [01] Unfortunate and not helpful the unilateral closure of borders in Balkans, said Peter Altmaier (Die Welt)

  • [01] Unfortunate and not helpful the unilateral closure of borders in Balkans, said Peter Altmaier (Die Welt)

    "We have worked very closely and constructively with Austria on the (refugees) crisis. However, we consider the decision for the unilateral closure of the borders as most unfortunate and not helpful. In the long run this will lead us again to the point that the countries of the EU will be summoned to resolve the situation (caused by the refugees problem) in Greece", told the head of the German Chancelorship for the refugees Peter Altmaier in an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt on Thursday.

    Altmaier reacted by making these remarks to the reporter's question if the regulatory role Austria aspires to take over in Balkans disrupts in any way the effectiveness of the German propositions about the solution of the refugees problem.

    Asked if Germany and its Chancelor Angela Merkel are isolated because of these initiatives, Altmaier answered: "This phrase is a cliché and it was equally wrong both in the case of Greece and the case of Ukrania. In the end, we could always managed to achieve a European consensus thanks to the substantial contribution of Germany. Also now is even more proven that our approach is correct and is backed by many more other countries".
