Berlin has warned Kabul over the flow of refugees saying it will continue security operations in Afghanistan only if arrival of refugees stopped.

The country’s Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere has said that Germany will stay in Afghanistan for providing security support as long as it is necessary but the influx of refugees be stopped.

“We’re staying here as long as it’s necessary. But we also expect that the Afghan population stays here,” Maiziere said. “We want the influx of refugees to be stopped.”

Maiziere said German police and soldiers will remain in Afghanistan “as long as it asks for security,” but stressed, “because we want to stay, we do not want that many Afghans to leave their country.”

The minister quashed any expectations Afghans may hold upon coming to Germany, stressing chances of asylum seekers finding success were slight.

“There is no welcome money in Germany. There is no guarantee of a job or an apartment,” he told state broadcaster ZDF, warning Afghans not to succumb to propaganda spread by people.

Maiziere promised to bolster deportations of Afghans from Germany, using current flight routes between the countries and hiring charter planes. He also offered Afghanistan financial help to reintegrate returned migrants.

Germany has nearly 1,000 troops under NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan.
