The Cabinet of German Chancellor Angela Merkel has approved an additional EUR 2.6 B for 2016 in order to deal with the influx of migrants, reported AVC News.

On Wednesday, the Finance Ministry announced that the increase in funds means that the federal government will allocate to provinces a total of EUR 9.5 B for 2016.

Besides, the government approved an additional EUR 1.16 B for the provinces for 2017.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Erdogan accused yet again the EU of not honouring the agreement of March 18 on refugees.
