Measures to improve security were presented by the heads of the interior Ministry of the Federal States in which the authorities are representatives of the ruling party Christian democratic Union (CDU). Next week, Ministers will gather in Berlin for further discussion of the Declaration, writes the Financial Times.

Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel, who heads the social Democrats, who are part of the ruling coalition, said in an interview with the Berliner Zeitung that his party would not support the abolition of dual citizenship.

In late July, Chancellor Angela Merkel presented a plan to combat the threat of terrorism, which, inter alia, included the participation of the army in domestic counterterrorism operations. She also believes that to prevent terrorist attacks should be taken at the EU level, including the creation of a single information centre for the registration of refugees.

At the end of July in Germany there have been two attacks, responsibility for which was assumed banned in Russia as a terrorist organization “Islamic state” (IG). In one case, a refugee from Afghanistan wounded four people with a knife in a suburban train in the North of Bavaria, and the other a refugee from Syria exploded a bomb at the entrance to a music festival in the Bavarian town of Ansbach, wounding 12 people.

On Tuesday, German authorities announced the arrest associated with IG men in connection with the recent police information about the preparation of attacks, timed to the opening of the football season in the Bundesliga. On Wednesday, as reported by Deutsche Welle, the German police conducted searches at the residences of three Muslim preachers who are suspected of recruiting young people into the ranks of terrorists.
