Mustafa AY – TDO – 15.09.2018 On Thursday, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer asserted that ongoing negotiations relating to ‘return of migrants at German border to Italy’ with his Italian counterpart Matteo Salvini culminated without problem.

That there will be officials from EU Justice and Home Affairs Council in the meeting is reported. Following the official meeting, Minister Salvini will arrange a private meeting on migration issue with Dimitris Avromopoulos –EU Commissioner in charge of Migration–.
