Merkel Opens Door to Diesel Lawsuits as Election Rival Attacks

Martin Schulz

Her campaign speech was greeted with deafening jeers and whistles, making it impossible for Merkel to continue delivering her message.

"We will have to wait and see how the situation develops", said Merkel.

Her party also excluded forming a coalition with far-left Die Linke party, she added, noting that the "Social Democrats lack this clarity".

"The head of government has to act and I did", she added".

Her comments came despite the fact that millions of refugees arriving in Germany since 2015 have led to major divisions in German society over the issue and led to the rise of the anti-immigrant party, Alternate for Deutschland (AfD).

Germany will help Egypt improve facilities for Syrian refugees and other displaced people in the country, and the two countries agreed to work more closely to crack down on smugglers who bring migrants illegally into Europe across the Mediterranean. Many migrants and refugees have fled poverty and fighting in their home countries, many coming from the Middle East, Africa and Asia. I know that the problem of youth unemployment has not been overcome but with these figures we are in a much better position than we were 2-3 years ago.

She said the policy was justified in that year because of the emergency situation during that particular period.




In Paris, meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron prepared to host a summit of Europe's "big four" continental powers including Germany, as well as three African nations to tackle Europe's migrant crisis.

The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party has gained considerable strength in the previous year and could get 10% of the vote in the election on September 24. But at this point, there is little doubt that she will be in the driver's seat after the election.

But Mrs Merkel insisted she would not shy away from hard debates in areas where her popularity has dipped.

'We're a democracy and everyone can freely express themselves in public the way they want, ' she said.

Europe is facing an unprecedented influx of refugees.

Mrs Merkel said it was unfair that Greece and Italy were left on their own carrying the full burden of the refugee crisis "simply because of their geography".

She said that the spat between Warsaw and Brussels touches on "the basis of cooperation inside the European Union".
