Outgoing German FM Steinmeier: West was wrong about Assad

Outgoing German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has given an interview to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung in which he has slammed Western policy on Syria.

According to Steinmeier he always called for cooperation with President Assad’s government in Syria only to face rejection from the ‘regime change’ coalition in Washington and Paris.

Steinmeier’s claim is probably true, but it does him little credit.  In truth it is typical of the way he conducted Germany’s foreign policy as Foreign Minister.  On Ukraine, Syria and Russia he repeatedly dropped hints that he disagreed with the West’s policies.  He then as German Foreign Minister unswervingly carried out the same policies he was privately criticising.

Steinmeier is now due to become German President, the post he might have been working towards all along.  It remains to be seen whether as President he finds the courage to articulate his opinions, which he conspicuously failed to find as Foreign Minister.
