BERLIN (Reuters) - Top Social Democrat (SPD) negotiators said on Wednesday via social media that they had reached a deal with German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives on forming a new coalition government.
In a message posted alongside a photo of SPD leader Martin Schulz and other SPD negotiators smiling, the SPD negotiators wrote: “Tired but happy. There is a treaty! Finally. Now the final details are being worked into the text. Then the 35 SPD negotiators will assess it.”
