Putin, Merkel discuss Syria in phone call

Germany's Merkel to visit Trump later this month

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that Russian Federation, as an ally of the Syrian government, bore joint responsibility for the chemical attack in eastern Ghouta earlier this month but she stressed she still meant to keep talking to President Vladimir Putin. Merkel sought to put a lid on the coalition wrangling before her meeting with Macron.

Germany and France aim to agree on proposals for European Union changes by June.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, general secretary of Merkel's conservative Christian Democratic Union, said Monday her party is not conducting a "discussion meant to block anything" in June.

Conservative lawmakers are due to debate euro zone reforms on Tuesday before Macron visits Merkel in Berlin on Thursday.

The idea of a European Monetary Fund, with greater powers and scope than the existing European Stability Mechanism, has always been opposed by some German politicians who are averse to greater economic integration within the 19 member currency bloc.

"Europe has been waiting for Germany for over a year", said Carsten Schneider, a senior member of the SPD, in reference to the policy paralysis prior to and since last September's German national election. In particular, the conservatives are allergic to the idea of pooling risks and debts with other euro zone countries.

A draft resolution for German lawmakers drawn up by top conservatives rejects plans floated by the executive European Commission to make use of a specific EU legal provision to beef up the currency zone's bailout system by creating a European Monetary Fund (EMF).
