Germany to refuse migrants from July if no European deal found: minister

Munich (Germany) (AFP) – Germany’s interior minister vowed Monday to begin turning back migrants at the border by July if Angela Merkel fails to find solutions with European partners, but the chancellor rejected the threat.

Merkel said she would seek agreement with European nations at a June 28-29 EU summit, but stressed there was “no automatism” about rejecting asylum seekers if no deals are reached.
