Germany's conservative parties said Monday they have agreed on a law limiting the number of migrants allowed to enter the country every year -- though parliament has the power to change the figure in the future.Chancellor Angela Merkel's party and its sister party in Bavaria, the Christian Social Union, say they want to limit the annual number of migrants to 200,000 . Merkel has repeatedly refused to agree to an annual cap for migrants, while the CSU had demanded a limit.While the CSU can now present an actual number to its party base, Merkel can point to the fact that the number is flexible and can be changed any time in reaction to incoming asylum seekers.
