Seehofer told broadcaster ARD he continued to work constructively with Merkel despite their differences, and said there could be solutions that would satisfy his Bavarian conservative Christian Social Union (CSU) party.

Merkel and Seehofer, leader of the CSU, are at odds over his plan to send back migrants who reach the German border after having registered in other EU states, unless Merkel reaches an acceptable deal with other European countries.
