Germany passes new measures on migrants


05-25-2016 20:24 BJT

Germany has approved a raft of new measures to deal with the migrant issue. Chancellor Angela Merkel has described it as a "milestone", as it combined "opportunities and obligations".

An influx of over 1 million asylum-seekers registered as entering the country last year. The new measures seek to provide migrants with better access to the German job market, and also foresees the creation of some 100,000 government-funded job opportunities.

At the same time, migrants will be expected to participate in an expanded orientation and language courses, which will also be made available quicker and to more people than before.

Merkel also said she was not worried about the migrant pact between the European Union and Turkey, but more time was needed to address sticking points on visa liberalisation for Ankara.
