The Belarusian leader said he was going to demand that Germany accept two thousand refugees from the Middle East.
"I am waiting for the EU to answer the question on 2 thousand refugees. We have about 2 thousand refugees in this camp. I asked them (EU) to take them away. They said Merkel promised me that they would consider this problem at the EU level. It is not even considered that way. And even what she promised me - contact persons - they don't even make contact. Foreign Minister of Belarus Makei calls them: "Let's work in this vein!" “Yes, we are there on a business trip, somewhere else and so on", - BelTA quotes Lukashenko as saying.
The President of Belarus also noted that the country will not accept migrants if the European Union refuses to let them into its territory. But if the FRG does not begin to take two thousand migrants who are now at the border, then Minsk will cope with it.
"We ourselves will cope with these people if Germany does not take them to itself. Where to go? We have nowhere to go. But we must demand from the Germans to take them”, - Lukashenko said.
Let us remind that the spontaneous refugee camp, formed on the Belarusian-Polish border, numbers about two thousand people. The situation at the border has remained tense since November 8.
The situation with refugees on the external border of the European Union poses a "multiple threat to the normal functioning of the EU", therefore the union demonstrates a "sober view of the situation": which was not always the case, said Polish Prime Minister Morawiecki .
As the speaker of the Polish government Piotr Müller said, the situation in Kuznica has slightly changed for the better, but the Polish authorities do not pretend that the overall situation has stabilized.
