THE Archbishop of Vienna has said the “unbelievable number” of migrants that had arrived in Austria was more than his country could cope with.

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn said he had come to “rethink” his stance on the migrant crisis during a special Christmas TV discussion programme with Protestant Bishop Michael Bünker.

The Cardinal, who is tipped as a possible future leader of the Roman Catholic church, said he was no longer convinced that Europe should accept all arrivals.

He said that it was better to concentrate on providing support to the nations in Africa and the East, hoping that migrants “could live in their homeland again.”

He added that he was becoming “more cautious” in his attitude as migrants had arrived in “unbelievable number”.

He said: “We have had to learn, this [crisis] goes well beyond our capacity and ability.”

Speaking about the changing mood in the country, with the rise of the anti-mass migration Freedom Party which looks to gain ground in the upcoming general election, the Cardinal said: “Our country is worried”.
