Representatives of Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU), the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens met for further preliminary talks on the possibility of forming a coalition, in Berlin, Thursday. Although foreign policy, security and defence were on the agenda of this meeting, negotiations didn't have any concrete outcomes on these... Еще issues. The only consensus was achieved on the topic of agriculture. The parties acknowledged a need for protection of environment and animals, while also protecting jobs in the agricultural sector. If negotiations between the parties are successful, CDU/CSU, the Greens and FDP could form a so-called Jamaica coalition, leaving the centre-left SPD as Germany's largest opposition party.
