Germany launches media drive to counter refugee rumors
by Andreas Rinke
When Markus Potzel, Germany's ambassador to Afghanistan, met senior Afghan government officials and journalists, he had a clear message for them: Don't believe what you hear about Germany - or at least not everything.
While Afghan television channels have made much of the welcome Germany has given to the refugees that have been streaming across its borders, that does not mean everyone can move to Germany or the European Union, he said.
Germany has become a magnet for thousands fleeing war and poverty in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Many are escaping the civil war in Syria.
