Germany's Merkel meets Jordanian king in Amman

Migrant boat

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's hardline allies on Wednesday took aim at her backing for a new eurozone budget, opening up another front after an attack against her on immigration.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday called for confronting what she described as Iran's "aggressive" policies in the region. It has given her two weeks to reach agreement with European partners.

The CSU idea is opposed by Merkel and the stand-off with the party leader and Germany's interior minister Horst Seehofer has threatened the stability of her coalition.

The CSU is determined to show that it's tough on migration ahead of an October 14 state election in which it wants to keep down support for the nationalist, anti-migrant Alternative for Germany party.

France and Germany are seeking deals with frontline states in Europe's migration crisis to return asylum seekers to the European Union country where they were first registered, usually their point of arrival, President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday.

As reported by Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's worldwide broadcaster, the meeting comes at a time of high tension in Germany between Chancellor Angela Merkel and her Bavarian sister party, the Christian Socialist Union (CSU) over immigration policy.

Help. The Eurozone now consists of 19 member countries of the EU. "They must not be mixed up with each other".

"This is an important step that Europe will be working on for a while", Merkel said alongside Macron during a highly anticipated meeting outside Berlin on Tuesday.

Under the plans, the NHS budget, which now stands at £114 billion, will increase by an average of 3.4 percent a year. Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, she said the government is working to secure the future of the NHS.

"We are doing everything we can so this decree is not implemented", she said, adding that it would make it hard or impossible for displaced Syrians to return.

Should the CSU and Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) fail to resolve their differences, there is talk that their 70-year-old conservative alliance could fall apart.

Malta's premier is telling a German aid group to reroute its ship away from the Mediterranean island to avoid further escalation of another European standoff over helping migrants.

Police also say that late on Thursday they stopped a van with 14 migrants from Afghanistan near the border with Slovenia. "It would not be good if everyone did so to the detriment of others".

With chances for an European Union deal on sharing out those who make it to Europe close to zero, sources said Germany would want the Sunday meeting to produce a commitment from states like Greece and Italy to take back asylum-seekers who make it to Germany.

Kempf said the German government needed to show leadership in key areas such as "the ongoing trade dispute with the U.S., as well as European migration policies and the desperately needed development of the eurozone".

During her visit to Beirut, Mrs Merkel will hold several meetings with prime minister-designate Saad Hariri who has been corralling much of the global support for Lebanon.

"These boats can forget about reaching Italy, I want to stop the business of trafficking and mafia", the right-wing leader of the League said. "Hopefully a joint position that goes in the right direction".
