Germany, Greece blast migrant route closure as divisions deepen

Migrants queue for soup under heavy rain on March 9, 2016 in a makeshift camp at the Greek-Macedonian borderThe German and Greek leaders blasted Balkan countries for shutting their borders to migrants ahead of an EU ministers meeting Thursday, with Greek Premier Alexis Tsipras warning that the EU “has no future if it goes on like that”. Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel said the closures are “neither sustainable nor lasting” in tackling Europe’s biggest migrant crisis since World War II and would leave Greece bearing the burden of the influx. Underlining the deep divisions cleaving the bloc, Merkel and Tsipras’ reactions flew in the face of the response of EU President Donald Tusk, who welcomed the route closure as being part of a collective response of the 28-member EU.
