“Yes, the borders will remain open,” Maas told the “Tagesspiegel am Sonntag” before the second lockdown began. “In the spring we had enough experience of how we organize controls if they are necessary,” stressed Maas. “I’m sure we won’t see traffic jams at the border that are tens of kilometers long.”
The situation in Germany was tense during the crisis, but it was better than in some other countries. “What I saw in the way of reactions from abroad was more of a mixture of admiration and the desire to do something similar. Anyone who compares our situation with that of other countries comes to the conclusion that Germany is not in that bad position, ”said Maas.
Nevertheless, the new corona restrictions that will apply from Monday are necessary. “We are facing a hard winter,” said Maas.
