European Union and Turkey have little hope of deepening ties, Merkel says

European Union and Turkey have little hope of deepening ties, Merkel says

"Europe itself still hasn't done its homework to this day", she said.

Merkel added, "In the end, he won the election under American electoral law, and that means he is democratically elected and that this person should be shown the appropriate respect, regardless of how I assess his views".

Her mother, Asia Faray, and father, Khalid Muhammed, arrived in Germany with their four children at the height of the refugee crisis in 2015.

Her Christian Democrats (CDU) now has a 13-per-cent-point electoral lead on their main challenger, the Social Democrats (SPD).

"I look forward to next week's debate", she added.

Merkel, whose conservatives have a double-digit lead over the center-left Social Democrats (SPD) in polls ahead of the September 24 elections, also ruled out a coalition with Germany's far-left Left party.

Schulz, who is trailing Merkel in pre-election polls, accused her of being aloof. Her mother had migrated from Ghana to Germany.

Last Saturday, she was booed by hundreds of voters at an election rally in the eastern German state of Saxony-Anhalt. "But it has to be properly designed".

Merkel said Tuesday that AfD official Alexander Gauland's comment "is racist and absolutely to be condemned".

With the SPD focusing on social justice, he attacked Merkel for blocking plans to let people file collective lawsuits against VW, a German vehicle maker, for selling diesel engines with fake emissions standards - the so-called Dieselgate scandal.

"The individual consumer who drives a vehicle and has to make his case against Volkswagen or Daimler is lost on his own", Schulz said.

"German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended her controversial decision to admit over a million refugees in 2015, and insisted she had no regrets, saying she would take the big decisions 'the same way again, '" British newspaper Daily Express wrote. Emnid polled 1,979 people between August 17 and August 23.

Germany and Egypt have agreed on a plan to reduce the flow of refugees and asylum seekers to Europe, as part of Berlin's wider push to curb the stream of illegal and unchecked immigration to the European country, refugees' ideal destination.

German Chancellor said she was convinced that she had made the right decision to allow safe passage - for which she took a political hit in Germany and which appears to have driven the rise of the right-wing populist AfD party. Schulz wants even more immigration, has called for the removal of US nukes from Germany, and wants a greater distribution of wealth.
