  • Merkel: UK must pay debt to EU

"Then she will never return again and then, thank God, we can dump her in Anatolia", he told the crowd amid applause and cheers, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper reported Monday.

"That's why we're in a very serious situation, particularly with Poland", Merkel said.

"It can not be that Europe only shows solidarity when it helps some of them", she said, adding that countries like Italy and Greece, where most refugees and illegal migrants are now arriving, should not be left alone.

Although the plan has successfully reduced irregular migration flows and came as a significant relief for Merkel in domestic politics, the European Union failed to timely deliver the promised funds.

Asked to comment on the criticism in her own interview on ZDF television, Merkel replied that she has always tried "to do justice" to her office.

Her comments open the possibility that legislation could be put forward after Germany's election on September 24 and the formation of the next government, which Merkel wants to head. The chancellor has already indicated she would not form a coalition with AfD but might take in the Free Democrats.

Fayez Serraj, the prime minister of Libya's United Nations -backed government, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Niger's president, Mahamadou Issoufou, stressed that fighting poverty must be a central part of any migration strategy, the AP reported. The results of the survey shows a better situation for the CDU compared to the polls in February, but they are still below its performance in the last elections in 2013, in which the party garnered 41.5 percent of the votes. Merkel also criticized the leading politician for the Alternative for Germany (AfD) Alexander Gauland's statement toward SPD deputy leader Aydan Özoğuz, calling it racist and that it should be strongly condemned.

German chancellor Angela Merkel has said she sees no possibility for deepening European Union co-operation with Ankara at present as the rule of law no longer exists in Turkey. 'It's important that we don't go out of our way to avoid certain areas only because there are a bunch of people screaming'.

A number of Merkel's campaign appearances have been disrupted by protesters from the AfD, which has gained support by denouncing Merkel's open-border refugee policy, especially in the former communist east. "This has definitely generated some self-confidence", Merkel said.

As soon as the projects were completed, another 3 billion euros would be made available to Ankara, she added.
