The German government says Chancellor Angela Merkel will travel to Turkey on Sunday for talks with the country's leaders on terrorism, Syria and the migrant crisis.

Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said Monday that the chancellor will meet President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

Seibert said the visit will focus on the countries' "common fight against terrorism," the situation in Syria and dealing with migrant crisis.

Germany and other European Union countries hope for help from Turkey to stem the influx of refugees and other migrants into EU member Greece.
