Signs of deescalation along the border between Poland and Belarus

DW, 18 Nov 2021
There are signs of deescalation along the border between Poland and Belarus. People stranded on the Belarusian side have started boarding buses to take them away from the area.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has spoken with Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko twice this week and stressed that migrants should be given the chance to return to their home countries with the help of the UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration.

Steve Alter, a spokesman for the German Interior Ministry, denied Berlin was planning to bring the migrants to Germany. The "road to Belarus is a dead end for most people who want to go to Germany. There are no plans to approve taking people in," he said.
