Angela Merkel did indeed speak, about migration during her visit in Georgia, but she mentioned the asylum-seekers from Georgia, and not the Syrian refugees. According to Merkel, the number of asylum-seekers from Georgia drastically increased in Germany after the introduction of visa-free regime. According to Mythdetektor, she also added that Germany would recognize Georgia as a safe country of origin for the return of migrants.
