Germany – Merkel Confirms Migrant Deal With Spain And Greece

Upon her return from the Brussels EU summit, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was glad to be able to inform her conservative base that the respective governments of Spain and Greece have accepted a sideline deal with Germany which she hopes will relieve the pressure from her Bavarian Interior Minister, Mr Ernst Seehofer.

As per Ms Merkel, the governments in Athens and Madrid agreed to take back any asylum seekers which are already registered in those countries should they show up on German borders, aka if they decide to make an illegal trip through either the Balkans (in the case of Greece) or France and the Low Countries (in the case of Spain).

The German Chancellor was convinced this deal would surpass the demand made by her conservative CSU coalition partners: "What we achieved here together is perhaps more than I had expected," Ms Merkel said to reporters adding that the agreements "are more than equivalent in their effect."

"We are not at the end of the road. I always said that we would never be able to agree a common European asylum system here. But the more we agree among ourselves, the closer we get to a possible European solution. I'm convinced of that."

In return, Mr Steffan Siebert, spokesman of the German Chancellery explained that Spain and Greece would receive additional funds to help them deal with the problem of migration: "We underline that fact that member states at the EU's external borders need more support, both financially and in terms of providing police and experts on asylum questions.”

Ms Merkel’s CDU party now hopes that her bitter dispute with Interior Minister Horst Seehofer and her conservative Bavarian allies can be put to rest. Only a fortnight ago, Mr Seehofer had threatened to unilaterally close German borders if Ms Merkel did not return from the European summit with a solution for the asylum crisis which plagues Germany. Meanwhile, Ms Merkel’s conservative party fell to their lowest ever score in nationwide polls.

The ragheads had already took over Spain centuries ago. Now they willingly let them back in? It would be a lie to say they didn't deserve it.
