Merkel: Difficult German coalition talks can reach a deal

BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel said German parties face a difficult task to bridge their differences in crunch coalition talks on Thursday, but she believes they can reach an agreement to work together in a new government.

“We have very, very different positions,” she told reporters. “If it works - I think it can work - there can be a positive result at the end of today’s negotiations. But this is a difficult task.”
