    Month-long coalition talks between Germany’s conservatives, liberals and greens hit another dead-end Thursday night, after the parties reportedly failed to bridge the gap over migration and climate.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The latest attempt at reaching a power-sharing deal reportedly collapsed over the prospect of allowing migrants to bring their families to Germany, as well as climate and financial policies.

    "Exploratory talks will go into extra time. Negotiations will continue tomorrow," the Green party announced on Twitter overnight.

    The business-friendly Free Democratic Party was upbeat about the outcome of talks that seek to form a so-called Jamaica government, named after black-yellow-green colors of the parties involved.

    "This special project must not break down over a couple of hours. Exploratory Jamaica talks delayed for a while," the FDP said on its social media account.

    Sources familiar with the negotiations told the German newspaper Bild that the parties would meet again on Friday afternoon.
