He wants to turn away at the border new arrivals who have previously been registered in another European Union country - often their first port of call, Italy or Greece.

Last week, during a visit to Berlin, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced a new "axis of the willing against illegal migration", which he said would feature Germany, Italy and his own country. Merkel isn't against a stricter border regime, but wants this to be part of a European agreement, which she hopes to achieve at an EU summit at the end of this month.

Seehofer's "masterplan" on immigration was meant to be the showpiece of the CSU's tough stance against new arrivals.

NELSON: The interior minister and his party, which is facing a major challenge from far-right populists in upcoming regional elections, say they will unilaterally prevent migrants from crossing Bavaria's worldwide borders if Berlin doesn't act. Its president, Donald Tusk, is interviewed this week with a good number of European leaders (including Merkel, Italian Giuseppe Conte and Spanish Pedro Sanchez) to get an idea of what can be achieved next week. He said, if Merkel's negotiations on getting other countries to take back migrants don't bear fruit, he will talk with her party but "I want be able to put this into effect".

Merkel must now attempt to build a solution with European Union partners by the beginning of July. More than 1 million migrants came to Germany in 2015 and 2016, though numbers have since dropped sharply.
