BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel is in favour of demands by her Social Democrat (SPD) junior coalition partners to renegotiate an unpopular deal to transfer the head of the domestic spy agency to a higher position at the interior ministry.

"The chancellor finds it right and appropriate to reassess pending questions and find a sustainable common solution," government spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement on Friday.
