Germany warns migrants route to EU not open; 2015 won't be repeated

Berlin (dpa) - The German government has issued a warning to potential migrants fleeing through Turkey that the route into the European Union is not open.

"At the moment we are seeing an extremely disconcerting situation at the outer borders of the EU to Turkey, on land and sea," government spokesman Steffen Seibert said in Berlin.
"We are seeing refugees and migrants who are being told on the Turkish side that the route into the EU is now open. And it is of course not," he added.
The statement by Chancellor Angela Merkel to the effect that the opening of Germany's borders that took place in the summer of 2015 would not be repeated "remains valid," Seibert said.
