LINZ, Austria (Reuters) - Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is likely to meet his German counterpart Angela Merkel and other European leaders this week to discuss migration, he said on Wednesday.

“There will probably be a meeting this week between Angela Merkel, me and other heads of state and government on the issue of migration policy,” Kurz told reporters ahead of a joint cabinet meeting with ministers from the German state of Bavaria.
