Europe should set a “generous” limit on the number of refugees it takes in a year, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said in a newspaper interview published on Thursday.

“When the quota is filled, there are no further entries in the year,” he said in the interview with Austrian newspaper Der Standard when asked how his proposal would work.
