France does not agree to a permanent mechanism for sharing refugees in the European Union as proposed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Saturday at the Munich Security Conference.
“France has agreed to take in 30,000 refugees. As far as these 30,000 are concerned, our doors remain open. But not more," he said, while recognizing that these figures might seem insignificant compared to the number of refugees in Germany.
The French Prime Minister visited the refugee camp at the Bayernkaserne (Bavaria barracks) where he showed no reaction as he was informed about how many refugees had arrived in Bavaria since the beginning of the year. The number was 100,252. His translator only asked for the number to be repeated, Valls only nodded and had no comment, merkur.de reports.
