German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that a deal to relocate 120,000 refugees among EU countries was far from what was needed to resolve the continent's biggest migrant crisis since World War II.
"I am deeply convinced that what Europe needs is not just selective relocation of this kind, but much more a durable process for fairly distributing refugees among member states," Merkel told parliament, adding: "A first step has been taken, but we are still far from where we should be."
