TAGS: Migration, EU

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday support for Greece on migration in light of the destruction of the country’s largest migrant camp should be pan-European.

“Greece has shouldered a lot of responsibility,” she said on Monday, adding that Athens has earned support.

"We will make a substantive contribution,” she added, noting more migrants will be transferred to Germany.

Bild newspaper reported on Monday that Berlin is considering taking in thousands of refugees from Moria as a one-off gesture and hopes the camp can be rebuilt and run by the European Union.
