    Merkel's hard defeat in Germany

    TEHRAN _ Finally, as expected, German Chancellor Angela Merkel failed to form a coalition government. Merkel is now facing hard times. He has to negotiate again with the Social-Democratic Party, the main rival, to escape the crisis. However, the Social Democrats have stated that they do not intend to have a coalition with Christian parties. On the other hand, Merkel may negotiate with the green party to form a minimal government. In this case, the Chancellor will have limited power in the next government. What is certain, Merkel's defeat in the formation of the Jamaica coalition represents a difficult path she will face in the future.

That France is unique – in its historic contribution to world politics, culture and of course cuisine – is a well-worn theme, most forcefully expressed in the words of the poet Victor Hugo, “France, without you the world would be alone”.
