Merkel to support Italy in tackling migration challenge

"We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully either, placing them at risk", he said.

The CDU and CSU have recently reached a political deadlock over the question of whether or not to turn back asylum seekers at the German border who were already registered in another Schengen area country. If she fails, the CSU vows to break its decades-old alliance with the chancellor's Christian Democrats, which would likely lead to new elections. She seeks cooperation with other European Union nations.

"It won't be. You look at what's happening in Europe, you look at what's happening in other places - we can't allow that to happen to the United States, not on my watch", Trump said.

CSU leader Horst Seehofer, who is also interior minister, has drawn up a plan under which Germany would turn away migrants who have already registered in other European Union states.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron address the media during a joint press conference at Schloss Meseberg governmental palace during German-French government consultations on June 19, 2018 near Gransee, Germany.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said it was "not the American president's role to speculate - as he did yesterday - that the German people would march towards the chancellery to remove Mrs Merkel".

"Member States should take all necessary internal legislative and administrative measures to counter such movements and to closely cooperate amongst each other to this end", the text said in an indirect response to German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.

"The European leaders will discuss the concept of reforming the EU migration system", the diplomat noted.

According to German news agency DPA, Merkel accepted the two-week deadline set by Seehofer earlier this morning, and promised to find a Europe-wide agreement over refugees at summit in Brussels on June 28 and 29.

Despite increased political pressure from Berlin and Rome, talks on reforming the bloc's internal asylum rules remain stuck with southern and wealthy central states demanding that all European Union members host some of the new arrivals.

"I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our worldwide boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel".

"Our colleagues consider the latter option very unlikely and see a further muddling through with no clear victor but a substantially damaged Merkel as the most likely outcome".

But just remember: A country without borders is not a country at all. "[Separation] happens in this country as well", she said. The broad consensus in our White House meetings was that we had to stem the flow, both at the source and at the border.


Also leader of the ultra-conservative Christian Social Union (CSU) - the Bavarian sister-party to Chancellor Angela Merkel - Seehofer's party is promoting the stricter asylum laws.

In a sign of the frayed nerves, Germany's political and media world lurched into a brief panic Friday as several media outlets fell for a hoax tweet claiming Seehofer's CSU was quitting the coalition.

The declaration highlighted the success of 2016 EU-Turkey deal in countering irregular refugee flows, and suggested developing cooperation and partnerships with origin and transit countries to avoid departures to Europe and fight illegal migration.

Another poll released Friday found that 66 percent of respondents are in favor of a European solution to the refugee issue, promoted by Chancellor Merkel.

Since peaking in 2015, the migrants' use of the Balkan route toward Western Europe has been impaired in part by Hungary's construction of razor-wire fences on its southern borders.
