Germany seals deal with Egypt to stem migrant flow

Germany, Egypt agree on plan to slow flow of migrants

Four weeks before the September 24 election, an Emnid opinion poll on Sunday showed Merkel's conservatives would win 38 percent, or 15 points ahead of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD).

With four weeks left in the German campaign, Social Democratic Party challenger Martin Schulz leveled his broadest criticism yet at Ms Merkel, whose Christian Democratic-led bloc leads the SPD by as many as 17 percentage points in national polls.

"The sanctions will be canceled when the cause is eliminated", Merkel told reporters at an annual summer press conference, Sputnik International reports.

Despite a political backlash, Mrs Merkel opened Germany's borders to people from across the world, allowing more than a million into the country. Although she's drawn thousands to hear her stump speech, schools in Berlin are still on vacation and many if not most Germans have yet to tune in to the campaign.

German Government spokesman Steffen Seibert said the new agreement will provide Egypt with more resources to help people find better jobs and study in Germany. "For me this isn't boring".

The commissioner, Aydan Ozoguz, has Turkish roots and had said that "a specifically German culture is, beyond the language, simply not identifiable".

Overall, the party won 24.3 percent of the votes in the election a year ago, making it the second-largest group after Merkel's center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in the regional parliament of Saxony-Anhalt.

Merkel said Tuesday that AfD official Alexander Gauland's comment "is racist and absolutely to be condemned". "You just can't do that".

'Those kinds of extraordinary situations happen every once in a while in a country's history.

It was only the second campaign appearance by Merkel in formerly communist eastern Germany, where anti-foreigner sentiment is especially pronounced.

"I take this very seriously", said Dr Merkel.

Angela Merkel says she wants to work more closely with Libya's government to curtail illegal migration from Africa to Europe.

She said the policy was justified in that year because of the emergency situation during that particular period.

Schulz, who is trailing Merkel in pre-election polls, accused her of being aloof.

"How often would you like to see me?"

The call drew a fierce rebuke at the time from Merkel, who warned Erdogan against interfering in the election.
