They wait, with a little more impatience every day. These migrants who request a transfer far from the devastated camp of Moria on the Greek island of Lesbos, have for the moment only one person to thank: Chancellor Angela Merkel. Indeed, Germany has announced that it wants to welcome more than 400 families, or 1,553 people.
“I hope other European countries will do the same. It’s not just Germany’s problem.”, said the Chancellor. In the other European countries, the announcements are made in a trickle: only ten countries (as well as Switzerland and Norway) have announced that they are ready to welcome migrants from the Moria camp. France, for its part, said it wanted to receive around 100 unaccompanied minors. Very insufficient announcements according to the European Commission.
