German Chancellor Angela Merkel does not want any Afghan refugees

Merkel’s motto “We can do it” is definitely over. The German Chancellor is adopting a tough tone after her welcome policy from 2015. In front of the media this week, she indirectly urged Afghans to stay in their country.

“We have already taken in very many Afghan refugees,” said Angela Merkel (CDU, 67). “We have to approach the matter differently.” Germany could not compensate for everything “that is difficult in Afghanistan”. And further: “We cannot solve all of these problems by accepting people.”
