sanlúcar de barrameda - Germany supports the efforts that Spain is making to curb the flow of refugees from Morocco into Europe. Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday in Sanlúcar de Barrameda that Spain is in charge of negotiations with the North African country about possible solutions.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said that Morocco feels abandoned by the EU and urges more financial aid, especially as the arrival of migrants causes social tensions. The government estimates that around 18,000 are currently running around. According to the socialist Sánchez, if Morocco receives sufficient assistance, it can play a key role in the regulation of migrant flows. '

Merkel emphasized that for success consultation is needed with the transition countries and the countries of origin. 'We should not talk about Africa but with Africa. 'The Chancellor avoided the question of whether Spain should stop migrants who want to go to Germany. She merely said that the Dublin Regulation, which stipulates that an asylum seeker must register in the EU country of arrival, does not yet function as required.
