The foreign policy of Chancellor Angela Merkel towards asylum seekers is “unsustainable in the long term” and Europe is simply not able to take in all the refugees arriving from Syria, Iraq or African countries, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has said.
This [Merkel’s] policy which is justified temporarily, is unsustainable in the long term,” Valls told German media, as cited by AFP.
The French PM said he believes Germany is not the only country that is unable to take all those willing to seek asylum there.
"We have to say this clearly: Europe cannot take in all migrants from Syria, Iraq or Africa. It has to regain control over its borders, over its migration or asylum policies," said Valls, in an interview which is to be published in full by German Funke media group on Saturday.
