Austria Warns Migration Crisis Could Lead To Use Of Force On Borders628 views
VIENNA: Austria may have to use force to ease any backlog of migrants if Germany decided to no longer let them enter via their shared border, but will continue to work closely with its neighbour to expedite the flow, the Vienna government said on
“The impression must not arise in Germany that the Austrians are doing the same thing as the Hungarians, simply moving people on,” Faymann told reporters, referring to the anti-immigrant Budapest government’s policy of swiftly shunting tens of
thousands of migrants to its frontier with Austria.
Of the more than 167,000 migrants who have reached Austria since early September, more than 90 percent carried on into
Germany, he said. “We must show Germany through cooperation that we are fulfilling our duty. Hard facts make for good friends.” – REUTERS
