116 Days ago

Vienna : The Austrian government has accused the German government of releasing misleading information which may keep the refugees within its territory, the media reported on Friday. A German government spokesperson on Wednesday said the country does not have quotas on daily refugee intake in place, which an Austrian interior ministry spokesperson on Thursday said was untrue, Xinhua news agency reported.

Germany has been limiting the intake at three selected border crossings to a maximum of 3,600 asylum seekers per day. Those who claimed there was no upper limit "lacked either knowledge or the will for transparent communication," said the spokesperson.

The Austrian government once again called on its neighbouring country to issue visas to asylum seekers in Greece to allow their direct travel to Germany without creating a backlog in Austria.  (IANS)
