“I no longer understand the policy of the Greeks. Greece cannot act as a travel agency and send all the refugees elsewhere. Greece received last year 11 000 refugees, while we received 90 000. This can not be repeated”, Federal Chancellor of Austria and leader of the Social Democrats Werner Faymann, says in an interview with the Austrian newspaper Oesteraich on Sunday, noting that “his country will remain consistent with its policy and will maintain the maximum limit of 37,500 people who seek asylum”.

“We cannot receive all refugees and that, as head of the government, I will advocate with every diligence,” he said.

The chancellor reiterated that the European Union could receive more than two million refugees, if the Austrian quota was implemented proportionally with all 28 member countries of the European Union.
