Stock Photo - ILLUSTRATION - A small figurine of German Chancellor Angela Merkel stands under a German flag and on top of letter-dice spelling out ""WIR SCHAFFEN DAS"" (WE CAN DO IT). Taken 18.03.2017. This quote dates back to a press conference with Angela Merkel on 31 August, 2015 that she made with regard to the refugee crisis in Europe beginning in 2015, and to Germany's accommodation of refugees. Since then, it has found far-reaching resonance within political debates and the media. It is the central slogan of the so-called 'Willkommenskultur"" (Welcome culture). Merkel repeated the often-criticised phrase on multiple occasions. In mid-September 2016, Merkel relativised her statement in light of clear losses for her party in state elections for the German state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and the Berlin House of Representatives, as well as the rise of the right wing populist Alternative fuer Deutschland party who have continuously opposed her refugee policy. - NO WIRE SERVICE - Photo: Sascha Steinach/dpa-Zentralbild/dpa | usage worldwide. - Berlin/Germany
