Merkel warns ‘serious differences’ still blocking coalition with SPD
German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned Friday that Germany’s top parties still had “very serious differences” to overcome ahead of next week’s deadline for sealing a coalition deal.
National news agency DPA reported Friday that they also reopened another point of contention — whether their agreed cap of allowing in 180,000 to 220,000 new asylum seekers a year should be regarded as a firm limit as sought by conservatives, or a flexible goal.
But that particular bone of contention was sorted out later in the day, DPA reported.
