German Chancellor Angela Merkel Agrees To Build Migrant Border Camps

Will the divisions over migration split Germany conservative coalition and spell an end of the line for Chancellor Angela Merkel

German coalition teeters as minister offers to resign over migrants

Following the news of Seehofer's resignation, the CDU has immediately stressed its support for Merkel's European solution in asylum policy.

Naspers dropped 2%‚ eroding some of Friday's gains when it rocketed more than 6%.

Seehofer offered to quit as interior minister and as leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister party of Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), during a marathon party meeting Sunday, but was later persuaded by CSU colleagues to meet with Merkel one more time and attempt to resolve the row, Reuters reported.

Although Ms. Merkel lives to govern another day, her coalition government is now more fragile than ever and her own position considerably weaker.

For the moment, the truce clears an obstacle that was eroding the chancellor's authority at a time when her challenges include a trade conflict with US President Donald Trump, the UK's exit from the European Union and rising populism across Europe.

All that changed when Merkel, in the boldest move of her 12-year-old chancellorship, in 2015 chose to keep open German borders to a wave of migrants moving through Europe via the Balkans route. Under EU law, those people must be taken in and arrangements made on a case by case basis to send them back to the first country of entry.

Her coalition partners have opted not to sink the government for now.

Seehofer after meeting Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) said on Monday that the two conservative parties had tightened border controls he was demanding.

It's meant to dovetail with a migration pact reached by the bloc's leaders last week under pressure from the CSU, which includes pledges by some European Union countries to take back asylum seekers rejected by Germany.

Ahead of a hard Bavarian state election in October, the CSU is determined to show it is tough on migration.

Facing a state election in October, the Bavaria-only CSU hopes to win back votes eroded by the anti-migration Alternative fuer Deutschland and prevent the bordering state from being further impacted by migration.

Seehofer also spoke with his Italian counterpart Matteo Salvini, leader of Italy's far-right League, by phone and both agreed to meet for bilateral talks before a summit of interior ministers in Innsbruck, Austria on July 11. SPD leader Andrea Nahles said there's still "a lot that needs to be discussed".

"We are the second biggest provider of troops, we are participating in several missions and Germany will remain a reliable partner of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", she said. If Seehofer were to go ahead with his policies, the dispute could end the decades-old conservative alliance between the CSU and the CDU.
