May will be welcomed at the chancellery with military honours and will hold talks with Merkel at 5.30 pm, followed by a working dinner, Steffen Seibert announced Monday, adding that the coup attempt in Turkey would also be discussed.

After her Berlin visit, May will fly to Paris for a bilateral meeting with French President Francois Hollande, Downing Street announced on Monday.
