Belgium: Merkel reassures EU despite lack of German coalition deal

German Chancellor Angela Merkel sought to calm her European partners at an EU summit meeting in Brussels on Friday. At a press conference, Merkel reaffirmed her and Germany's commitment to the country's EU obligations, despite the failure of the 'Jamaica coalition' talks in Berlin. «Of course, I was asked by my colleagues on the sidelines of this meeting about what's going on in Germany, I could... Еще tell them we, as the [head of the] acting government, will respect our obligations toward Europe, as is normal, and we will continue to contribute actively,» she stated. On Monday, the Free Democratic Party withdrew from preliminary coalition talks between the Greens and the governing Christian Democrats, citing differences between the parties on keys issues.
