Germany “should set up a daily quota and then bring these refugees directly from Greece, Turkey or Jordan,” Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann told the Kurier newspaper on Wednesday.
“Austria cannot and must not become a distribution hub [for refugees]. There must be an end to that,” Faymann went on.
He could not accept “that several thousands of people are waved through every day, on the other hand Germany informs us that today it will only allow 1,000 or 2,000 into the country.”
