GERMANY: Chancellor Angela Merkel slapped down Schleswig-Holstein Governor Daniel Guenther yesterday for suggesting the Christian Democrats (CDU) could enter coalitions with socialist party Die Linke.
Mr Guenther said in an interview that the CDU should be “pragmatic” about partners at state level depending on election results.
But Ms Merkel said: We will do everything in the upcoming elections to form governments under CDU leadership without Die Linke and without [far-right party] AfD.”
KOREA: Leaders of North and South Korea will hold a summit in the northern capital Pyongyang in September, their representatives said yesterday.
The meeting will develop ties and the relaxation of tensions that has seen Northern leader Kim Jong Un meet counterpart Moon Jae In twice so far this year.
Northern delegation leader Ri Son Gwon said a date for the meeting had been agreed but would not be revealed to “keep reporters wondering.”
IRAN: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said yesterday that the country would not enter talks with the US but wouldn’t go to war either.
“Along with sanctions, Americans have recently raised two more options — war and talks. War will not happen and we will not enter talks,” the theocratic leader decreed.
TUNISIA: President Beji Caid Essebsi said yesterday he will legislate to give women equal inheritance rights to men “as soon as possible.”
Currently daughters inherit typically about half what sons do under a system based on sharia law.
The proposal is a recommendation from a recent government report that also advocates legalising homosexuality and abolishing the death penalty.
