EU sacrifices Italy and Greece to save Merkel: France and Germany push to return asylum seekers to nation where they arrive as Chancellor faces coalition revolt over migrant crisis

France and Germany are pushing to return asylum seekers to the EU country where they arrived - as German Chancellor Angela Merkel faces a coalition revolt over the migrant crisis.

On Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron said France and Germany are seeking deals with frontline states in Europe's migration crisis to return asylum seekers to the EU country where they were first registered, usually their point of arrival.

'France and Germany will ensure that those who are registered in a Schengen zone country can be taken back as quickly as possible to the country where they have been registered,' he said, vowing to achieve this through bilateral and multinational agreements.
