German Chancellor Angela Merkel reiterated her call on Wednesday for a Europe-wide response to the influx of refugees into the continent, adding that the EU would re-assess the situation at a summit in mid-February.

The chancellor, facing intense domestic pressure to stem the flow of migrants into Germany, said she wanted a European solution to the crisis and that Turkey’s role is also key.

Her government would bring new proposals on tackling the refugee crisis to a European Union summit in mid-February.

“Then we can draw an interim conclusion, then another interim conclusion, and then we will see where we stand,” she added.
