Trump to host Germany's Merkel at the White House

Germany and Tunisia announced the signing of a new agreement regarding migrant flows on Friday during German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit to Tunis.

"We have agreed with Tunisia to send back 1,500 Tunisians in Germany who have been refused (permission) to stay in Germany", Merkel said at a news conference with Tunisian President Beji Caid Essebsi in Tunis.

"The visit of Angela Merkel shows a profound change in the relationships between the two countries.a change that crowns a fruitful cooperation and a series of mutual visits", said Caid Essebsi.

"Germany cooperates closely with Tunisia in the economic arena", Merkel said.

The attack has increased pressure on Merkel's government to get tough and reduce number of asylum seekers.

"Measures will be taken in the Tunisian consulates in Germany to help in their identification", he added.

He noted that the high-level economic delegation is accompanying Merkel during her visit to Cairo to discuss Germany's increasing investments in Egypt.

Germany has taken in more than 1 million migrants since 2015. "The funds are for rural development, small and medium enterprises, but mainly for youths. who especially need job training and employment opportunities", she said.

Merkel, who left for home later Friday, had also planned a trip to Algeria last week but it was called off after President Abdelaziz Bouteflika fell ill.

The trip is part of a larger diplomatic push by Merkel, who past year visited Mali, Niger and Ethiopia.

Following the meeting, Merkel will attend another meeting with Egyptian businessmen.

Germany has made strengthening economic development in Africa a priority for its presidency of the G20 group this year.
