BERLIN, January 11. /TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not plan to take part in the annual Davos forum scheduled to be held in Switzerland on January 20-23, and talking about cancelling the trip is irrelevant, a source in the German government told TASS on Monday.
"The Chancellor did not cancel her trip to the forum because she did not plan to take part in it to begin with," the source said commenting on the report by The Financial Times.
The newspaper earlier said that Merkel cancelled her visit to Davos because of the complicated situation in Germany against the backdrop of latest developments in Koln.
