Merkel: migration crisis may become make-or-break challenge for EU

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has addressed the parliament in a speech, involving the issues of migration.

"Europe faces many challenges, but that of migration could become the make-or-break one for the EU," she said, addressing the German parliament.

Merkel concluded that 28 EU member-states needed to reach an agreement and must consider a coalition of the willing on migrant policy.

According to her, the EU's fate depends on its ability to rise to the challenges of the migration debate.

The German chancellor said that there was "a lot of goodwill" to discuss EU disagreements on the issue, Sputnik reported.

"But there is still a need to reform. That is why we agreed with France to work together," she said, adding that that included developing the European Stability Fund into a kind of European monetary fund to help avoid potential crises.
