BERLIN (Reuters) - Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday the German government did not yet have a common position on whether diesel cars needed to be retrofitted with catalysts but hoped to come to a decision by the autumn.

“I’ve set the end of September as the target date,” Merkel said, adding she wanted to avoid driving bans if possible.
