Germany, Egypt reach agreement to slow down flow of refugees to Europe

German Chancellor Angela Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has ruled out any forms of cooperation between her party and the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) as the latter is likely to enter the Bundestag in the upcoming federal elections.

In a separate TV appearance, the chancellor dodged a question about her main rival.

Sanctions on Russian Federation will be lifted once Moscow agrees to sign a ceasefire agreement with Ukraine, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Speaking to German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, Mrs Merkel said: "I'd make all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again. The problem must be dealt with while respecting the rights of refugees and migrants in accordance with global law", the Egyptian foreign ministry quoted Shoukry as saying on Sunday. "All member states of the eurozone are showing economic growth, including Greece", Merkel said just less than a month before Germany's September 24 national election. Last year, Bitterfeld-Wolfen made headlines when the AfD won more than 30 percent of the vote in a regional election.

Nandyal bypoll: Win shows trust of voters, says Chandrababu Naidu
The TDP's Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy defeated his nearest rival, Silpa Mohan Reddy of the YSR Congress party , by over 27,466 votes. Speaking to the media at State Capital Amaravati , the Chief Minister said the by-election was an indicator of things to come.

Merkel said that a different clause in the refugee deal that provided for visa exemptions for Turkish citizens entering the European Union could not be implemented at the moment, as Europe's condition that Turkey amend its terrorism laws in exchange for the visa liberalization process had not been met.

Asked about the European Commission's plan announced in May not to continue the controls beyond November, Merkel said she would call for their extension during talks with its chief Jean-Claude Juncker on Wednesday.

"That some countries refuse to accept any refugees is not on".

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

Qatar restores diplomatic ties with Iran

"The first name of the girl is Angela; the second is Merkel". On Saturday, a crowd of protesters was yelling and whistling at her during the 30-minute speech in Quedlinburg, a town in Saxony-Anhalt.

She had faced hecklers one day earlier at a rally in the town of Quedlinburg who had chanted "traitor!" and "liar!" when she spoke about immigration.

The chancellor also appeared unworried about voter blowback from eurozone bailouts, another issue that has drawn criticism in recent years but failed to ignite in the campaign.
