What the 'Open Door' Policy Will Mean for Angela Merkel in the Long Run
MOSCOW (Sputnik) German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced on Thursday an increase in the number of security forces in Germany and across Europe after a string of Islamist attacks in the region.

"We have already considerably increased the number of security jobs across Germany but also in the [European] Union," Merkel said at the annual press conference.

The chancellor said this was part of the ongoing effort to prevent terror attacks in Europe, alongside with the creation of an anti-terror center inside European police Europol.

She added that German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere was asked to carry out a deep analysis of the situation and come up with more security proposals. "The federal interior minister will make proposals together with his regional colleagues," she said.
