France, Germany seek deal to return migrants to EU arrival state: Macron

Meseberg (Germany) (AFP) – France and Germany are seeking deals with frontline states in Europe’s migration crisis to return asylum seekers to the EU country where they were first registered, usually their point of arrival, President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday.

“France and Germany will ensure that those who are registered in a Schengen zone country can be taken back as quickly as possible to the country where they have been registered,” he said, vowing to achieve this through bilateral and multinational agreements.
