Pressure grows on Merkel to tighten refugee policies

That G7 photo: Who’s trumping whom? It’s perspective, stupid

If the plan is enacted, migrants who had already registered in other European Union countries would be sent away from Germany's borders and returned to the initial country.

However, Seehofer had to cancel Tuesday's presentation of the plan - which envisages fully reversing an open-door policy Merkel announced in 2015 - due to differences with his boss.

Speaking at a press conference in Berlin after his meeting with German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, Mr Kurz said: "In our view, we need an "axis of the willing" in the fight against illegal migration". Merkel said that while she could imagine such a scenario in the future, Moscow would first have to make progress in putting forth a viable peace plan for the country, Reuters reported. On Saturday, a rejected Iraqi asylum seeker suspected of raping and murdering a 14-year-old girl was detained after a foiled attempt to return to Iraq.

Other world leaders shared different angles of the photograph.

Merkel leads a coalition in Berlin of her Christian Democrats, their Bavarian allies CSU to which Seehofer belongs, and the Social Democrats (SPD).

On his way to Singapore, the USA president tweeted: "Based on Justin's false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!"

On that last point at least, the two leaders saw eye to eye, with Kurz saying he wanted to beef up the EU's border force Frontex and give it more powers to "reduce the number of arrivals".

However, a new anti-establishment Italian government is also vowing to turn away migrants - it has already forced one ship to divert to Spain - and it is unclear whether she will succeed.

This year, quite a bit happened like US President Donald Trump asking for Russian Federation to be readmitted to the summit although Merkel was having none of it. Russian Federation was kicked out in 2014 because of its occupation of Crimea.

Merkel said she will keep talking with Trump., but renewed her call for Europe to take a more forceful role in global affairs and said the European Union won't be "take for a ride" in its trade conflict with the US.

The SPD and opposition politicians have accused Seehofer, a former leader of Bavaria, where the majority of refugees have entered Germany, of putting the interests of his southern state before European Union cohesion.

Seehofer also won support from Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who on Monday flatly refused to allow a rescue vessel carrying hundreds of migrants to dock. "Other states will surely follow", he said in a statement.
