the call for The strengthening of multilateral partnerships, has the first day of the 55. Munich security conference: foreign Minister Heiko Maas canvassed in the themes for a strong Europe.
foreign Minister Heiko Maas has at the Munich security conference, the strengthening of Europe as a "national core interest" of Germany. "Germany and its European partners - and here I include the UK specifically - need Europe as a strong player and not as an object of global politics," he said. The success and the further development of the European project was part of the German "reason of state".
Europe should engage significantly more. "If it wants to assert its values and interests in relation to the USA, to Russia and China, had to do it the closed. "Otherwise, we are triturated and fragmented." said Maas in the issues of the day. There is a crisis of international organizations and multilateral-ISM, Maas. "That's why we are campaigning to ensure that, in a world in which the challenges are all limitless, international solutions are sought." That is not possible, if you leave international agreement and could not rely on each other.
