Addressing a press conference in Hanover after a meeting with leaders of the G-5 Group (US, France, UK, Italy, and Germany), Merkel said the EU-Turkey deal which took effect three weeks ago should be realized through the NATO deployment in the Aegean Sea.

Merkel said G-5 leaders are concerned about the break-up of the fragile ceasefire in Syria, the homeland of hundreds of thousands of people displaced by civil war and trying to enter Europe. The G-5 agreed to continue Syrian peace talks in Geneva, Switzerland, to find a way to end the Syrian war.
