The chancellor mentioned demographics, the rapid ageing of the German population, as one of the key national challenges and called immigration “a gain for all of us”.

Touching on the case of a Kurdish refugee who has settled in Germany, she said that it is “perhaps the biggest compliment” for the country to call it a place “where the children of the persecuted can grow up without fear”.
