BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition partners, the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD), said on Monday they would not automatically support an agreement reached by centre-right parties to limit the numbers of migrants coming to Germany.

SPD leader Andrea Nahles told reporters that all three coalition parties in Merkel’s governing coalition had to discuss the proposals by Interior Minister Horst Seehofer before a European Union summit at the end of this month.
