Seehofer has always been harshly critical of Merkel's decision to open German borders in mid-2015 to a mass influx of over one million asylum seekers, although the government has sharply restricted entries since.

"We need a real European border police that can act if necessary even if it displeases one of the (EU) states with external borders".
