Germany: Coalition talks «correct direction» for SPD — Schulz

Leader of Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD) Martin Schulz stated that embarking on new coalition talks is the «correct» direction the SPD has to take, speaking from the party's headquarters in Berlin on Monday. «Bringing the party in a direction that keeps the country stable, [as well as] makes European reforms possible and, at the same time, enforces a maximum of the SPD programme, is a... Еще direction which is worth to be explored,» Schulz said. «Which option [of government participation] we will choose, we don't know yet, but I believe taking this direction is correct,» he added. The SPD leader then stressed that he is optimistic about the upcoming negotiations and said: «We can prove that we take the chance which came about with the new constellation for the social democracy to enforce things.» After initially expressing his wish to remain in opposition to the CDU/CSU in wake of the collapse of the so-called 'Jamaica coalition' talks, Schulz conceded to enter discussions on forming a centrist 'Grand coalition' alongside Merkel's CDU, amidst growing pressure.
