“A humanitarian resolution is being negotiated on the European stage for a ‘coalition of the prepared’ to soak up these kids,” stated the federal government in an announcement.
Berlin was prepared to soak up an “applicable” share, it added.
“We wish to help Greece within the tough humanitarian state of affairs of about 1,000 to 1,500 kids on the Greek islands,” added the federal government in an announcement after greater than seven hours of talks between leaders of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s right-left coalition.

Concern over the plight of the minors have grown as they both require pressing medical remedy or are unaccompanied by adults.
Calls have grown in current days for different European nations to take them in, as Greece got here underneath intense strain after Turkey stopped stopping migrants from leaving for EU territory.
During the last week, migrants have repeatedly sought to storm the Greek border, with clashes erupting as Greek police used tear fuel and water cannon to push them again.
Amid the disaster, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is due in Brussels Monday for talks with the EU.
Ankara and the EU agreed in 2016 a deal by which Brussels would supply billions of euros in support in trade for Turkish authorities curbing the stream of migrants.
However Ankara has repeatedly accused the bloc of not fulfilling its guarantees.
