In Brussels, the European Union asylum office said Monday the number of people applying for global protection in Europe plunged past year but remains higher than before 2015, when more than one million migrants entered, many fleeing the war in Syria. "Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!"

Driven in part by the civil war in Syria, the number of asylum seekers entering Germany began to rise sharply in 2013, when it reached nearly 110,000, and then soared after Merkel changed the policy in the summer of 2015. Figures for the first four months of 2018 show the downward trend has continued.

He also said the European Union should step up dialogue with migrants' countries of origin and of transit, and especially with conflict-torn Libya, to stop illegal traffickers. There are often migrants queuing up there, either to file an asylum application or because they want to travel on to Britain as fast as possible via France. And while it's true that German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government is in danger of falling due to objections to her immigration policy, it's not true that crime in Germany is "way up".

Chancellor Angela Merkel's fourth-term government took almost six months to put together, taking office in March after the centre-left Social Democrats reluctantly agreed to team up with her conservatives again. He has, however, given her until the summit to find such a solution.

Reuters reported that Merkel was asked about Trump's inaccurate claim during a news conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Chancellor Angela Merkel coolly rebuffed US President Donald Trump's assertion that migrants were behind a surge in crime in Germany, pointing to statistics that showed crime was in fact down.

It wasn't immediately clear what she might offer other countries in talks.

Her concern is shared by charities, who believe the Dublin regulations are not suitable for today's migration crisis. The Geneva Refugee Convention, to which Germany is a signatory, guarantees every person seeking protection against human-rights violations the right to an asylum procedure, regardless of whether they have identification papers or not. Seehofer has given Merkel a two-week deadline, until July 1, to make deals on migrants with other European countries.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, an anti-migration hardliner, was invited to CSU meetings.

On the opposing side countries such as Italy will be pushing for such a redistribution, given that the country is an entry point for European Union arrivals.

Since peaking in 2015, the migrants' use of the Balkan route toward Western Europe has been impaired in part by Hungary's construction of razor-wire fences on its southern borders. In some countries, such as Belgium, Finland, Austria or Greece, right-wing populists are coalition partners in government.

Bruno Le Maire, France's Minister of the Economy, described what they agreed as a "euro area budget" and "safety net in the event of a financial crisis" and said they would also increase "tax convergence on corporate tax".

Refugee charities have appealed to politicians from all member states to fix the "broken system" that exists.

"Member States should take all necessary internal counter such movements", the text said in an indirect response to German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.

"So we need to give key countries something to keep them on board", one European Union official said of the proposed text.
