MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Speaker of the German Eurosceptic Alternative for Germany (AfD) party’s parliamentary group Armin-Paulus Hampel called on the German government to cooperate with Syrian President Bashar Assad on the issue of Syrian refugees’ return.

“In line with the goals of our migration policy, we must create the situation that would make refugees’ return to their homeland possible … In order to achieve that we must hold talks with Assad whether we like it or not,” Hampel told the Welt newspaper.
