    GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel called yesterday for more Turkey-style refugee deportation deals between the EU and north African nations.

    Under the controversial EU-Turkey agreement, Ankara will take in deported non-Syrian refugees arriving by sea in Greece and Italy in return for planeloads of Syrians on a one-for-one basis.

    Most Syrian refugees — more than a million — have been accepted by Germany, which has historically sought migrant labour from abroad. Ms Merkel has urged German firms to employ more Syrians.

    “We must agree on similar deals with other countries, such as in north Africa, in order to get better control over the Mediterranean refugee routes,” she told regional daily Neue Passauer Zeitung.

    “Such agreements are also in the interest of the refugees themselves,” she claimed.

    “It is safer for them and there are good reasons for them to remain in Turkey, close to their homeland, where the cultural and language barriers are lower,” the chancellor said, defending the deal as “correct, as before.”

    That deal is now in jeopardy as the EU has reneged on its promise of visa-free travel because of Ankara’s crackdown on suspected supporters of last month’s failed coup.

    Ms Merkel appeared to rub salt into that wound when she told the Ruhr Nachrichten daily that Germany’s roughly three million citizens of Turkish decent should be more loyal.

    “We expect of people of Turkish origin who have long lived in Germany that they develop a high degree of loyalty to our country,” she said.
