German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday that she expected Slovakia to be an honest mediator on migrant issues when it takes over the European Union's rotating presidency in July.

"I have no doubt that when it comes to the agenda we have ahead of us - and that now means above all dealing with the Mediterranean route from Libya - that Slovakia will be an honest broker and that it will, with the presidency, unite the member states of the European Union," she said.
