Germany: Diesel summit with mayors of affected cities

Today, the mayors of 20 of the most polluted German cities meet with Angela Merkel and other top politicians such as Siegmar Gabriel and Horst Seehofer. At this meeting, the cities contribute their ideas for the improvement of urban air quality in order to avoid driving bans. Before the meeting, the municipalities already asked for money to improve their own fleet and public transports as quickly as possible. However, a changeover to electric cars must be planned in the long term and is not yet foreseen.
