Germany's Angela Merkel: 'Refugees must be distributed fairly'

Merkel: UK must pay debt to EU

"Europe itself still hasn't done its homework to this day", she said, adding that the continent can not be selective in showing solidarity.

Regarding the euro area as a whole, the German chancellor pointed to several encouraging signs, such as that fact that all member-states - including Greece - were experiencing economic growth, while the number of jobless was down and employment was rising.

"I would take all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again", she told Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper, saying they had been necessary to "avert a humanitarian catastrophe".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday admonished some European countries for what she called their failure to accept a fair share of migrants and refugees during a crisis that has caused rifts across the continent.

Earlier, Merkel accused one of the AfD's top officials, Alexander Gauland, of racism for recent remarks that Aydan Ozoguz, the government's integration minister, should be "dumped" back in her parent's homeland, Turkey.

"We say it clearly: There will be no coalition with the AfD", Merkel said in the eastern town of Bitterfeld-Wolfen as dozens of protesters among the audience booed and yelled "Get lost!" and "Merkel has to go!"

Majority in poll: Trump rhetoric could 'accidentally' involve U.S. in worldwide conflict
For some comparison, in the same survey, 5% of voters said prejudice against minority groups was "not a problem at all" in the US. Ten percent of survey respondents said they did not know whether to trust Trump or the news media.

Merkel, seeing a fourth term, has had to contend with loud and sustained heckling from demonstrators strongly opposed to her refugee policies so far on the campaign trail.

Merkel also spoke out the same day in an interview with rival German broadcaster ZDF. They had repeatedly criticized Merkel for her decision two years ago to let in almost 900,000 refugees, while other European Union countries barely took in a few hundred or hardly any at all. This center would be in Egypt, a transit country for migrants striving to reach Europe.

"If she wants to come in under my leadership with the CDU as junior partner, then we can see".

In Paris, meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron prepared to host a summit of Europe's "big four" continental powers including Germany, as well as three African nations to tackle Europe's migrant crisis.

That is up from 32 per cent in February but well below the 41.5 per cent her party won in the last election in 2013. Independent journalism is a basic pillar of democracy that can "never be questioned, even when it is uncomfortable", she had said.
