BERLIN, June 28. /TASS/. German’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier in an interview with Welt am Sonntag, published on Sunday, spoke about the role of Russia in settlement of international conflicts, including the one around the Iranian nuclear programme.
"Russia has its own interests in having that conflict settled," he said. "Till now, the Ukrainian crisis has not affected the position of the Russian Federation at the negotiation table. This conflict [around Iran’s programme] is one of the conflicts in that region, which cannot be settled without Russia."
The foreign minister also shared thoughts about the role of Germany.
"We should not overestimate our abilities and should not demonstrate muscles," he said. "the international community trusts us and is expecting our political and diplomatic steps regarding major conflicts. We should not reject this responsibility."
Germany "is not a super nation, but still it should not close eyes on international crises. It should be "boxing, but not in bigger weights," the foreign minister said figuratively.
