President of Ethiopia wants youth to stay in Africa and not take the dangerous journey to Europe - Sebastian Kurz reports on African politicians who criticize the EU's open borders
Vienna (kath.net) Sahle-Work Zewde, the new president of Ethiopia, has warned criminal smugglers in a double interview with Sebastian Kurz with the BILD newspaper and made it clear that people should stay in Africa. One should not lose one's own youth. "We must keep the people here who will lead Ethiopia - and Africa - into a better future." The President also wants a clearer distinction between migrants and refugees.
Sebastian Kurz also wants the African youth to stay in
Africa and not come to Europe at all. "On my trip through Africa two weeks ago, by the way, I've heard of some heads of state who said clearly, 'Stop your policy of open borders in Europe, which only motivates African youth to break away' that many people fall for the lies of the smugglers via social media like Facebook and then pay thousands of euros for dangerous crossings.
