Sanchez, Merkel to Seek Common Strategies on EU Migration, Defense, Euro

MADRID – The office of Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez advanced on Thursday to EFE the contents of upcoming joint high-level talks with Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Both leaders will explore over the weekend bilateral and European Union matters, taking in core issues such as defense, monetary and economic union and the EU’s role as a social pillar.

“The Head of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, and the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, will meet at the Las Marismillas estate, in Doñana National Park, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 August, where the Prime Minister is set to spend some vacations days accompanied by his family,” the office said in a statement.

The informal meeting between the two European leaders was expected to focus on the German-Spanish migration agreement signed Aug. 6, effective Saturday, by which Spain will accept migrants intercepted at the German-Austrian border who had previously requested asylum status in Spain.

Other talking points include the EU’s monetary and economic union reform, the need to reinforce its role as a social mainstay, including quality employment initiatives, advancing Europe’s defense and review the latest NATO summit results.

Sanchez recently invited Merkel to spend a weekend in Doñana at the Marismillas palace.

The two leaders will on Sunday visit the unique enclave of Doñana nature area which includes 120,000 hectares (296,526 acres) of national and natural parks and is considered one of Europe’s top nature reserves where special measures are being taken to protect the endangered Iberian Lynx.
