The AFP reported on June 15 that a majority of Germans (62 percent) support Seehofer in wanting to see "undocumented asylum seekers" turned away at the border, while 86 percent said they want to see faster deportations of migrants whose asylum claims have been rejected.

In addition to the migration issue, heads of state discussed issues such as the reform of the European area with a view to greater financial and banking integration.

Yet in spite of the threat of being sacked from cabinet and triggering the collapse of the German federal government, the CSU leader has warned that he will press ahead unilaterally with his "migration master plan" unless Merkel secures a binding and comprehensive agreement from other European Union member states at the Brussels summit.

Germany's transport minister, a senior member of Chancellor Angela Merkel's Bavarian CSU sister party, said on Monday there was no tangible progress on reaching a European solution on immigration and therefore national measures were required. Sixteen EU leaders met for emergency talks in Brussels on Sunday hoping to find an agreement for the full summit of all 28 EU members on 28-29 June.

Unable to agree, they have become more restrictive on asylum and tightened their external borders to let fewer people in.

Both leaders insisted before the press on the need for the European Union (EU) to develop a common migration policy to strengthen collaboration with countries of origin and transit of migrants.

But Soeder has invited Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, whose ruling coalition includes the far-right FPO party, to participate in Bavarian election events, the newspaper said.

Although arrivals across the Mediterranean are only a fraction of what they were in 2015, when more than a million people reached Europe, a recent opinion poll showed migration was the top concern for the EU's 500 million citizens.

"It is about give and take, as we did in the EU-Turkey agreement", said Merkel.

A separate poll conducted by Forsa showed that 54 percent of CSU voters in the wealthy West German state would switch and vote for Merkel's CDU if it were on the ballot in Bavaria.

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) has long chanted "Merkel must go", but now her traditional allies the conservative Bavarian CSU are flirting with the same idea.

If the coalition does break up, Merkel could lead a minority government or new elections could be called.
