Merkel calls for more cohesion, says refugee crisis 'split' Germany

New Delhi, Mar 21 Prime Minister Narendra Modi today called Angela Merkel to congratulate her on assuming office as the Chancellor of Germany for a fourth successive term.

"We consider these tariffs unlawful", Merkel told lawmakers in the Bundestag lower house of parliament, adding that Germany was convinced that isolationism would hurt everyone in the end.

Merkel said Germany fully supported Ireland's position on the matter.

On the issue of refugees, Morawiecki spoke of a need to reform the European asylum system and declared Poland's readiness to help work out new solutions in this area.

Varadkar said it was absolutely necessary to prevent the creation of a hard border between the two neighbouring countries - an event which could come about if Britain leaves the European customs union.

Buhari said he is "most delighted to learn of the successful conclusion of the inter-Party negotiations to form a new Government after the last election in Germany". Angela Merkel gave the first speech of her latest term to parliament, addressing the controversial topic of migrants and their place in German society.

Alexander Gauland, the head of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD), accused Merkel in his response in front of the legislative body of dividing Europe with her open-arms migration policy.

She said Wednesday that Germany, which allowed in more than 1 million migrants in 2015 and 2016, can be proud.

"Nevertheless, the continuous contact with Russia's leadership is very important to us", he said.
