The German Chancellor Angela Merkel warmed to the idea of creating a combined European finance and the forming of a European Monetary Fund.

Her party's support dropped as a effect and led to a surge in support for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which pollsters say could win up to 10 per cent in next month's election. In the eastern town of Quedlinburg on Saturday, she tried to engage the voters but unfortunately the people just couldn't forget the type of damage Merkel has brought to the nation.

Merkel said, according to the news agency "ABC" America on Tuesday, "we renew our demand clearly is the release of citizens detained there", stressing that Turkey has launched an campaign of "unjustified" detention of German citizens, and described the stage of German relations - Turkish as "very complex".

The only thing she could say, Merkel added, is that things were now much better than a year ago "when I anxious a great deal more".

She insisted that Germany could cope by saying "Wir schaffen das" ("we can manage it").

He said the conservatives' campaign was simple: "We have Angela Merkel and that's enough for our future".

Meanwhile, speaking at the annual meeting of European Union envoys in Brussels, Juncker said on Monday that Turkey is moving away from Europe in giant steps, adding that ending Ankara's efforts to join the European Union officially depends on Erdoğan.

She said that any mistakes in her handling of the refugee crisis came before 2015 when Germany opened its doors, arguing that policy had "placed too much on the Dublin system in the past, which has overburdened countries such as Italy and Greece".

The Social Democratic Party (SPD) leader said Merkel had tried to dictate terms for their sole televised debate next week, and accused her of abusing the perks of office by flying to campaign events "at a bargain price".
