Ahead of an emergency European Union summit with Turkey French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met in Paris to discuss the migrant crisis. Both leaders again called for a joint European approach.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has pledged extra money for the world's top refugee and migrant advocates. While far fewer asylum seekers are now reaching Germany, new fronts in Europe's migration crisis are opening.
The Social Democrats' leader has warned of the "fatal mistake" of mixing the debate on integration with security policy. Weeks ahead of key elections, the SPD has tried to distance itself from Angela Merkel's CDU.
Germany is reorienting itself away from the US and the UK and toward France. Chancellor Merkel made that abundantly clear in a major speech to parliament about the EU's future and next week's G20 summit in Hamburg.
With just two months until election day, Martin Schulz must drum up more support if he wants to unseat three-term Chancellor Angela Merkel. But his latest attempt to do so was wrong, says DW's Michaela Küfner.
