German Chancellor Angela Merkel (R) and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt (L) arrive to give a joint press conference in Berlin on June 19, 2014German Chancellor Angela Merkel reiterated support for Jean-Claude Juncker as the European Commission’s next head Thursday but indicated a willingness to consider concessions to Britain, which opposes him. Merkel told a joint press conference with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt that Germany supported the former Luxembourg prime minister for the job. That doesn’t mean that one can fulfill all wishes, but it means that elsewhere one perhaps can think about what is very important for Britain,” Merkel said. She added that she was ready to talk “very constructively” with Britain about issues such as reducing bureaucracy or what issues should be decided by Europe or by nation states.
