BERLIN, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - Candidate for German chancellor from the Social Democratic Party of Germany Peer Steinbruck appealed to Angela Merkel to carry out a mediating mission between Western countries and Russia in the Syrian conflict. He has made a statement on Thursday, presenting his programme for the first 100 days if he wins forthcoming German federal election, the DPA news agency reported.
The main goal of a mediating mission should become “some changes in the position” of Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the events in Syria that will permit to avert a possible military strike on Syria, the Social Democrat noted. Steinbruck noted that from the point of view of Russia and China, which can veto down any decision (in the U.N. Security Council), Germany “is a very important partner for them in Europe.”
Chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany Sigmar Gabriel has made the same appeal to Merkel before.
