Germany's Capacity to Receive Refugees Limited - President
BERLIN (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the German parliament, the Bundestag, is expected to discuss amendments to the country’s migration legislation. The changes to the bill categorize Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro as safe countries of origin without political repression and armed conflicts. Therefore, migrants from these states will not be granted asylum in Germany.

“[Migrants] who are not entitled to stay, will have to leave our country,” Maiziere told the deputies in the Bundestag.

He added that Germany needed to develop its “hospitality culture,” by encouraging patience and tolerance among both the German population and the new arrivals.
