BERLIN – German coalition parties failed to resolve a row over migrant policy during four hours of late night talks on Tuesday and further discussions were needed, Volker Kauder, a senior lawmaker in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats (CDU) said on Wednesday.

Asked if the three coalition parties had resolved the dispute that threatens Merkel’s three-month old government, Kauder told German television:

“No, it was not to be expected because the party committees meet on Sunday,” he said.

“It is very serious – we saw that in the talks, this is not about something small, it is about something central and important. We need to talk to each other.”
