ヨーロッパの移住問題を解決する、ドイツのメルケル (完)

Merkel: A new way
Speaking earlier in Berlin, Merkel advised against states acting unilaterally on migration, insisting that Europe needs to remain true to its multilateral values. It’s an approach that can be seen as the polar opposite of US President Donald Trump’s “America First” message.
“My maxim is: Not unilateral, not without consent, but with the consent of partner states,” said Merkel. “Which is precisely what we have been discussing in the last few weeks. And what I will be talking about when I return. It will not be perfect. But it is the beginning of a new way.”
「私の格言は、一方的ではなく、同意なしではなく、パートナー国の同意を得て」とメルケル氏は語った。 「これは、ここ数週間で我々が話し合ってきたものであり、私が戻ったときに何を話しているのかは完全ではないが、新しい方法の始まりだ」

She argued that Germany’s so-called open door migration policy in 2015 — when more than 1 million migrants entered Germany — was an exceptional event and a decision that Germany did not make on its own.
“Our decision to open doors to refugees in 2015 was not unilateral. We acted to help Austria and Hungary,” she said.
Merkel also pointed out that the number of asylum seekers coming to Europe had fallen dramatically and that it was now time for Europe to return to the migration policy it had before 2015.
Germany would push to strengthen Europe’s external borders as well as seek agreements with African nations “similar to the agreement made with Turkey” on the return of rejected asylum seekers, she said.

Merkel conceded that her Interior Minister Horst Seehofer was right to push for a plan that reduces irregular migration and that high-profile criminal cases involving asylum seekers showed the need for tougher deportations.
“We are not yet where we want to be,” she said.
Seehofer — whose disagreements with Merkel over migration briefly threatened to bring down her government earlier this month — was not present for the speech. A German Interior Ministry spokeswoman told CNN he had “other appointments to take care of.”
By making this speech before, rather than after, the summit Merkel may hope to have taken the wind from the sails of her hardline critics such as Seehofer.

Tusk: ‘Time is short’
In an invitation letter sent to EU leaders ahead of the summit, Tusk said a failure to ensure full control of Europe’s external borders risked strengthening the hand of newly emerging populist political movements.
“More and more people are starting to believe that only strong-handed authority, anti-European and anti-liberal in spirit, with a tendency towards overt authoritarianism, is capable of stopping the wave of illegal migration,” he said.
“If people believe them, that only they can offer an effective solution to the migration crisis, they will also believe anything else they say. The stakes are very high. And time is short.”

Tusk also sounded a warning over Trump in the wake of the G7 summit in Canada, where deep divisions between the United States and its allies in Europe were laid bare, and ahead of a key NATO summit next month.
“Despite our tireless efforts to keep the unity of the West, transatlantic relations are under immense pressure due to the policies of President Trump,” said Tusk.
“Unfortunately, the divisions go beyond trade. I will share with you my political assessment of where things stand. It is my belief that, while hoping for the best, we must be ready to prepare our Union for worst-case scenarios.”
