BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission’s head, Jean-Claude Juncker, said on Tuesday an agreement on migration reached by parties in Germany’s ruling coalition looked in line with European Union laws.

“I have not studied it in detail but at first glance, and I have asked the legal services to look at it, it seems to me to be in line with the law,” Juncker told a news conference on the sidelines of a European Parliament session in Strasbourg.
