The leader of the German Social Democratic Party (SPD) Andrea Nahles commented on the clash over asylum policies between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Minister of Interior Horst Seehofer, speaking at a press conference in Berlin on Monday. «The CDU is cornered through ultimatums, blackmail attempts, and threats to step dow. Compromises are so far not to be seen. It can't go on like this... Еще,» said Nahles. «CSU is on a dangerous ego-trip, which cripples Germany and Europe,» she added. She stated that her party expected the «CDU and CSU [to] stop arguing for good and that they commit to the coalition agreement and to this coalition, so we can continue the work of the government and return to real issues.» She expressed her hope that the «CDU and CSU work together trustfully again,» underlining that this should not depend on one person.
