German Chancellor Angela Merkel has visited a refugee camp in Turkey in an attempt to build support for the migration deal between the EU and Ankara. It foresees Turkey taking in even more refugees in exchange for financial aid and other incentives.
No change in Germany: Angela Merkel will stay on as chancellor. Germans like constancy. However, Merkel has some major tasks to fulfill during her fourth term in office.
German Chancellor Merkel stressed that the situation with North Korea must be resolved peacefully. She told DW that Germany could be in a position to mediate in the conflict.
Germany has been supporting mediation efforts between Qatar and several Arab nations that accuse the tiny country of supporting terrorism. Emir Al Thani's made Berlin one of his first stops since the crisis erupted.
In an exclusive DW interview, Merkel's challenger criticized her campaign motto and lack of leadership. He was also highly critical of Turkish President Erdogan, saying he would not be blackmailed on refugee policy.
