Muslim migrants are welcome in Germany but “have to accept our way of life,” German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble said.
If they don’t like Europe’s culture, they have made “the wrong decision” in moving to the Continent, Schäuble said during a panel discussion in Berlin Wednesday evening, according to local media.
“There are better places in the world to live under Islamic law than Europe,” he added.
On the upcoming French presidential election, the finance minister said Germany needed “a pro-European France.”
“We need France to hold together Europe,” he said, adding that he hoped far-right candidate Marine Le Pen would not become president.
On Tuesday, the conservative politician said he would vote for independent candidate Emmanuel Macron if he were French, rather than the center-right’s François Fillon.
