The Union Chairman in the foreign Affairs Committee Roderich Kiesewetter, in the report of the German foreign office on the security situation in Syria in his attitude with regard to possible deportations in the country confirmed. “Syria is neither a free country nor the rule of law backed up,” said Kiesewetter. It has to be assessed for the German authorities with a view to the sensitivities on the ground very hard, which ethnic group or which religious group could bring where back to Syria. “You can’t say that’s why a lump sum, the deportations are in principle possible,” said Kiesewetter. As long as the security situation does not change, is the very critical to see.

“Now it is up to Seehofer,”

Strobl Minister Horst Seehofer (CSU) called on the inside, to be in the matter. “Now it is the Ministry of the interior, to say what conclusions the Federal government draws from it,” he said with views of the management report.
