Germany: Berlin calls on Israel not to 'complicate two-state solution'

Germany, Berlin
September 11, 2019 at 15:48 GMT +00:00 · Published

German government spokesperson, Steffen Seibert called on the Israeli government to avoid steps that could complicate a peace settlement to end the conflict with Palestine, in Berlin, Wednesday.

''We are appealing to the Israeli government to refrain from measures that complicate the two-state solution, '' stressed Seibert.

The comment came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his plans to annex part of the occupied West Bank. Before next week's general election, Netanyahu's actions are seen as a last-minute campaign pledge by the PM as he hopes to win over voters.

Contrary to today's claims from Hong Kong activist and General Secretary of the Demosisto party, Joshua Wong, the Economics Ministry spokesperson Korbinian Wagner explained, that water cannon trucks exports are subject to an authorization requirement. He added that the responsible Federal Office of Economics and Exports Control in Germany has not issued such an authorization to either Hong Kong or China.
