BER­LIN: Chan­cel­lor An­gela Merkel will em­bark on a three­day trip to Africa on Oc­to­ber 9 for talks on the root causes of Europe-bound mi­gra­tion.

Government spokes­woman Ul­rike Dem­mer said yes­ter­day that the talks would take place in the Ethiopian cap­i­tal, Ad­dis Ababa, as well as in other lo­ca­tions.

Dem­mer gave no fur­ther de­tails.

Merkel has urged the EU to repa­tri­ate mi­grants who do not qual­ify for asy­lum, sign read­mis­sion deals with African na­tions, and boost de­vel­op­ment aid so mi­grants have less rea­son to flee poverty.
