The media reports on Germany being unaware of the location of over half of the migrants that arrived in the country in 2015 are wrong, German Interior Ministry spokesman Harald Neymanns told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik), Alexander Mosesov — On Thursday, media reported that the German government is unaware of the whereabouts of more than half of the 1.1 million asylum seekers in the country.

“There is one newspaper that claims the situation was out of control like that. It’s a challenging situation for everybody but the story where Germany doesn’t know where 600,000 refugees are is wrong,” the spokesman said.

Following the media report, the German Interior Ministry said that most of the migrants had already gone to other EU countries and another part of those missing can be explained by delays in application procedures.

Europe is struggling to find a solution to a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Germany has been the main destination for those fleeing war and poverty.
