Bulgaria: Today's Quote Merkel Youtube

"Europe hasn't done its homework...

...we still don't have a fair system of distribution [of refugees]. We still have a lot to do in this regard. We have to combat the reasons for people fleeing. We need agreements with various African countries. This proceeds from the same spirit as our emergency humanitarian assistance."

Merkel on Turkey

"We want better relations but that goes hand in hand with respect for the rule of law, and we don't see that in Turkey at the moment, that also has an effect on our economic relations."

When specifically asked whether the government had any plans on how to improve relations with Erdogan, Merkel's response was curt.

"We'll keep trying," she said. "But Turkey is headed in the wrong direction where the rule of law is concerned."
