German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she has no regrets about her 2015 decision to open the country's borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees and added she will not be deterred from campaigning by angry hecklers.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she can't keep quiet "for the sake of peace" on concerns about the rule of law in Poland.

With a double-digit lead against her socialist rival Martin Schulz, Merkel remains media's favorite to win the September 24 vote.

"We should do more", Merkel, said while also stating that a military conflict with North Korea could be avoided.

'Those kinds of extraordinary situations happen every once in a while in a country's history.

"I know that it is very, very hard for many people but I think that Greece will also benefit from more jobs and then gradually from more prosperity", she said.

"There are many issues where people have the feeling that Merkel is out of touch", Schulz said in an interview on public broadcaster ARD.

"Yes in principle", the chancellor said Sunday when asked about a demand by her main opponent, Social Democratic leader Martin Schulz to allow vehicle owners to collate complaints against carmakers. Merkel told members of her Christian Democratic Union at a previous rally in northern Germany that her government would "do everything in its power" to secure Yücel's release.

"It's a very complicated phase in our relations", she said. "I want to spare Germany that again", Schulz said.

Opposition has been particularly staunch in her home region in former communist east Germany.

Supporters of the far-right, anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party jeered her throughout a 30-minute campaign speech in the eastern city of Bitterfeld-Wolfen hours after Merkel declared comments by a top AfD official to be racist.

"The economic coherence [in the eurozone] in terms of research and development, sovereign debt and many other things leave something to be desired", Merkel said, adding that the EU's banking union and digital single market remained works in progress.

The sheer scare of refugees accepted by Ms Merkel's government led to a large backlog of asylum applications.
