German automaker Daimler and the German transport ministry have agreed to clear up very complex technical issues connected with diesel emissions, a spokesman for the ministry stated on Friday.

He informed that concrete steps were agreed after a meeting on Monday where German Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer questioned Daimler boss Dieter Zetsche concerning how many Mercedes-Benz vans and cars need to be repaired after a regulator found illegal software in one of its models.

The ministry was requested to comment on a report in magazine Der Spiegel that stated Scheuer had threatened to fine Daimler 3.75 billion euros ($4.38 billion) concerning a diesel emissions scandal.
