Whether Nato or the United Nations, the foreign policy, especially as the German one, device these days always in the spotlight. As it is, we look only to the Atlantic Alliance, the loyalty to the Alliance, the overall reliability of the strongest European Partners questioned.
Since it is by Far not only the much-quoted, much-criticized Two-percent target, so the enormous increase in national defence budgets, the to-be-missed Germany. But its role as a bridge to the whole of the East, not least to Russia. And as we say, orientation of power in the heart of the old continent, have already fear of its political importance. Because as if there were not challenges and put pressure on the Cohesion, probably even longer-lasting turmoil to the Brexit and the dramatic rise of power of China to the determined super of 21. Century.
So far the Status. The acts, in turn, inevitably, as it is not only the policy, but also the Performance of the chief in the foreign Ministry, which is seen from the formal top diplomats Heiko Maas. The judgment, in short, to anticipate: it is critical to see, very even. As in the foreign office, and, in addition, also in the group of the SPD.
Maas there is a lack of concept and consistency
Now, Maas is not a qualified foreign politicians. He was in the Saarland, three times the top candidate, Minister before him, took his time, SPD leader Sigmar Gabriel in Berlin. Some say saved: Maas as a political Talent. Now he is but a while, Minister of foreign Affairs, and, if you want to take the criticism, then so: There is a lack of concept and consistency.
the Minister says he is because of Auschwitz in politics – but last year, Germany voted in the UN human rights Council in 21 resolutions against Israel 16 times, with four resolutions it contained. Or: Venezuela's interim President, Juan Guaidó of Guaidó sent emissary as Ambassador is not recognized? (And in the case of Venezuela, some say as a possible new Syria.) Or: His criticism of the British is clear – but where there is a primary, original idea? Or: disarmament of Germany writes now great again, you should be in the UN, an issue during the German presidency of the security Council, the INF-Treaty should be saved – but what a great disarmament initiative would remember? Swaying Maas’ attitude to Russia is, sometimes hard, sometimes soft. And how was China? In Beijing, there was also irritation.More about

What Minister Maas is that he makes publicly, bella figura. And that the current coalition could use no resignation.
