Her Christian Democratic bloc (CDU/CSU) and Social Democratic Party reached an agreement last month to form another "grand coalition" government, after a months-long post-election stalemate.

The same parties have governed for the past four years but Wednesday's parliamentary vote comes 171 days - almost double the previous record - after September's election, in which they all lost significant ground.

Merkel listed internal security and European cooperation among the new government's priorities, as well as new challenges such as responding to import tariffs announced by U.S. President Donald Trump. "Such differences of opinion over whether situations are fair or not have to be resolved in talks, I think, and not if it can be avoided in some way by unilateral actions", she told reporters in Berlin.

"I am optimistic that we'll manage it", Merkel said.

She said that "we need Europe - a Europe that shares the same values and acts together, particularly toward the outside world, and we. will make our contribution".

AÂ so-called grand coalition has ruled Germany since 2013, but when all three parties lost support in September's general election, the SPD initially said it would go into opposition and regroup.

Angela Merkel "optimistic" and eager to 'get to work very quickly'.
