Merkel to Trump: push forward UN Syria process

Merkel to Trump: push forward UN Syria process

Merkel had previously been seen as likely to retain her post as chancellor, though in recent weeks polls have tightened sharply, and Schulz's SPD is now running neck-and-neck with the ruling Christian Democrats, raising the possibility of a leftist coalition after the vote.

US President Donald Trump said that the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria's Idlib province on Tuesday, which resulted in the death of over 80 people. He and other officials have also said that German spending on development aid - 0.7 percent of GDP - should be considered a component of security, an argument the US rejects.

Although Merkel barred him from speaking at the Brandenburg Gate, Obama - then a senator - drew 200,000 cheering fans to the nearby Victory Column monument for a speech about ripping down walls of division.

It said Obama will receive the prize in Baden-Baden in southwestern Germany following his Berlin appearance on May 25, news agency dpa reported.

The event kicks off a summer marking the quincentennial of the Protestant Reformation.

Merkel and Trump spoke by telephone on Monday.

The Obama-Merkel appearance is expected to occur prior to President Trump's first meeting with Merkel overseas, at the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg in July, the Associated Press notes.

Schulz' main rival, chancellor Angela Merkel of the centre-right CDU party, has said Germany feels "obliged to reach this goal" of two percent defence spending. During a trip to Germany in November, Obama called Merkel his "closest ally".

Church officials said they expected more than 100,000 people to participate in the gathering which will take place in both Berlin and Wittenberg from May 24-28.

Trump, who is deeply unpopular in Germany, is set to visit the country in July for a Group of 20 meeting in Hamburg, two months before Germany's federal elections. It would be his first public talk since his second term came to an end in January. "That's not supposed to be happening, but I've been proven right".
