Germany Refuses to Take 2,000 Migrants Left Stranded on the Border of Belarus and Poland



 German Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman said Monday that receiving 2,000 migrants who remained at the border between Poland and Belarus was not a solution acceptable to Germany or the EU.

Steffen Seibert made the remarks after Belarus' authoritarian leader on Monday chafed at the European Union for its refusal to hold talks on the influx of migrants on the country's border with Poland.

President Alexander Lukashenko urged Germany to accommodate about 2,000 migrants and criticized EU officials for refusing to negotiate an end to the standoff.

The EU has accused Lukashenko's government of orchestrating the migration surge on its eastern flank as a "hybrid attack" in retaliation for the bloc's sanctions over the crackdown by Belarusian authorities on domestic protests.

Belarus denies the charge.
