BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany and France will agree on European reforms by June, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday, brushing aside concerns that compromises could spawn a weak package.

"The basis of what we are working on in the German government is the coalition deal," Merkel said, referring to a government policy document agreed between her conservatives and their Social Democrat (SPD) coalition partners.

She also expressed confidence that "a strong package" would be agreed, when asked whether Germany was acting as a brake on euro zone reform.
