Germany's Angela Merkel: 'Refugees must be distributed fairly'

Merkel: UK must pay debt to EU

She said the goal was to put an end to illegal migration.

Gabriel told newspaper Bild that, in dealing with Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Germany faced neighbors to East and West who believed "not in the strength of right, but the right of the strong", Reuters reported.

"There are many issues where people have the feeling that Merkel is out of touch", Schulz said in an interview on public broadcaster ARD. "And if I can do that, then I can win the parliamentary elections".

Despite the endorsement by the Normandy Format, a diplomatic group set up by France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine, the security situation in eastern Ukraine has not significantly improved, according to the statement in the name of French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Once the Greek programme has been implemented, she added, "we will have relatively good prospects".

Germany's statistics body said that German gross domestic product grew 2.1% from the second quarter of 2016, taking account of calendar effects.

German Chancellor said she was convinced that she had made the right decision to allow safe passage - for which she took a political hit in Germany and which appears to have driven the rise of the right-wing populist AfD party.

She says "however much I want to have very good relations with Poland. we can not simply hold our mouths and say nothing for the sake of peace".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that Europe still "hasn't done its homework" on long-term solutions to the flow of migrants to the continent.

At a wide-ranging news conference a day after she discussed the continuing influx of migrants from Africa with other European leaders, Merkel tackled head-on an issue that once looked likely to be a liability in Germany's September 24 election but so far has failed to hurt her.

The chancellor has been holding rallies across the country for more than two weeks now, touting her 12-year record of halving unemployment, citing progress in the refugee crisis and pledging expanded broadband access.

On the future of the EU, the German leader said she backed plans to turn the European Stability Mechanism crisis fund into a full-blown European Monetary Fund.

Turning to foreign policy, Merkel called on Turkey to release German citizens swept up in the aftermath of last year's failed coup attempt, calling their imprisonment "unjustified".

Speaking at a press conference in Berlin, she stressed that the rule of law was "the basis for cooperation within the EU". Ankara says it has spent more than €20 billion ($24.1 billion) from its own national resources for helping and sheltering refugees since the beginning of the Syrian civil war.
