PRESS RELEASE


War Party Goes Berzerk Again Against Germany”s Foreign Minister Steinmeier

July 18, 2016 (EIRNS)—German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier did it again: In an interview with Bild am Sonntag yesterday, he warned against continuing with the "saber rattling" escalation against Russia which would only provoke counter-escalation on the Russian side and cause things to "easily get out of control" at some point. He also said that the sanctions against Russia were not intended to be there forever, that progress on the Minsk II process would make lifting sanctions possible.

This immediately embarrassed Norbert Röttgen, chairman of the Bundestag foreign relations committee, who declared that calling NATO measures into question and discussing the sanctions were "just the most wrong thing to do at this time."
