ISLAMABAD – German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel has said that his country can cope with at least 500,000 asylum seekers a year for several years and it expected more than 800,000 asylum-seekers this year – four times the 2014 figure.
Gabriel reiterated that other European Union (EU) states should share the burden. The UN's refugee agency, UNHCR, says a record 7,000 Syrian migrants arrived in Macedonia alone on Tuesday and 30,000 were on Greek islands, he said that in an interview with Germany's public ZDF television.
