Germany, Egypt agree on plan to slow flow of migrants

Europe still 'hasn't done homework' on refugees: Merkel

Asked about the issue at a news conference Tuesday, Merkel said that she takes issues raised by the European Commission "very seriously".

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.

Chancellor Angela Merkel says she wants to continue ruling Germany to help improve the wealth and security of its 82 million residents and to foster solidarity among all parts of society.

Merkel's remarks, less than a month before the German election, suggest she has little appetite for the kind of sweeping overhaul of the eurozone that countries such as France have been advocating.

The issue of migration has played an only moderate role in the German election campaign and Merkel is widely expected to win a fourth term in next month's vote.

"Yes in principle", Ms Merkel told ZDF.

She said the Dieselgate proposals, put forward by an SPD minister in the current coalition between SPD and CDU-CSU, were flawed and that she would allow collective lawsuits if they were "properly designed". Mr Schulz, who doesn't have a position in Ms Merkel's administration, has said it's the government's job to avoid driving bans. In an interview with ARD television on Sunday, he accused Merkel's chancellery of blocking collective lawsuits against the auto industry.

He homed in on a report in news magazine Der Spiegel at the weekend which claimed that Merkel was using police and army helicopters on the campaign trail but that her party was only paying a fraction of market rates.
