German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has always set anti-German priorities. This irresponsible behaviour is now once again becoming apparent.
For while Germany has cared for more than 200 foreign Corona patients free of charge (i.e. to the detriment of the German taxpayer), the Foreign Minister is playing the tough guy with the sick Germans who are abroad.
The Social Democratic comrade has now announced that the federal government will not transport back corona-infected vacationers to Germany this summer. “In any case, anyone who becomes infected on vacation cannot assume that we will bring them back to Germany”, Maas told the newspaper “Bild am Sonntag”. He continued: “Of course, in acute emergencies our foreign missions are always ready to provide consular support. But: “The Federal Government will not be able to send planes again this summer to bring German tourists home.” On Wednesday, Maas announced a gradual lifting of the travel warnings. In an interview with the newspaper “Bild am Sonntag”, Maas said that the travel warnings would be limited to EU countries.
They want to be sure “that our citizens, when they travel, are as safe as possible with regard to the spread of the virus”. The Foreign Minister has not specified when the travel warning will also be lifted for countries outside the EU, such as Turkey. “There are talks with the Turkish government. We will not maintain the travel warning permanently”, said Maas. However, when the time will come will depend on how the pandemic develops.Maas warned that he will issue new travel warnings against these holiday destinations very quickly if corona protection measures are violated: “The distance and hygiene rules also apply to the hotspots. If they are not observed, travel warnings can turn into travel warnings again.”
In this context it is also noteworthy that more than 15,000 migrants have entered Germany by plane to date. The expenses do not matter, they are not Germans after all.
