Germanys foreign minister said Saturday he is hoping for direct talks with Iran, in addition to the countrys European partners and the United Nations, as a way of de-escalating tensions in the Middle East following the US assassination of Qassem Soleimani.
Heiko Maas told the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag: In the coming days, we will do all we can to counteract a further escalation of the situation in the United Nations, the EU and in dialogue with our partners in the region, including in talks with Iran.
Despite heightened anxiety in the region, Maas said he had no plans to increase Germanys deployment of around 120 troops in Iraq.
The fight against ISIS is and remains in Germanys interest, and the Bundeswehr is providing important training to this end on the ground, Maas said, using another name for the Islamic State group.
Maas told Bild he was in close contact with his British and French counterparts, along with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and the EUs foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell, who has also called for calm following the US airstrike in Baghdad that took out Soleimani on Friday.

We should paint a mustache on the Stasi bitch and send Germany back to the Stone Age.
what did german hillary have to say?
You know what they say about making deals with the devil...
With as many middle easterners as they have welcomed into their country in the last several years it’s no wonder they are the first up to try to defuse potential problems spreading to their country.
I guess Jimah is getting to old.
A modern Rip Van Winkle who went to sleep as the US won WWII could wake up and be told Germany has huge a Muslim population and they influence policy, and so does Britain which has elected a potty mouthed Muslim Arab as Mayor of London.
“I’m going back to sleep. This can’t be true.”
Once Iraq kicks he US out of their country, Germany (or at least the German citizens) are going to wish they hadn’t.
Well now, you see, this can’t be. Rand Paul said, “Diplomacy is now dead in the Middle East.” And if he said it, that must be the case. So the Germans need to just back off, b/c it’s just a waste of time.
Well, if Rand said that, did he say anything about victory?
Was Germany the country that sold advanced centrifuges to Iran?
So, religion of peace was a big lie after all
Okay, time to nuke the Germans a well and take care of business the Michael Corleone way
To the less obtuse among us Rand was obviously talking about American diplomacy.
Half a dozen countries who were formerly U.S. allies now overrun and taken over by muzzlimes, with the full consent and cooperation of their insane libtard governments, now seek to undermine the U.S. When the muzzlimes complete their takeover, don’t come crying to us to bail you out, you libtard whores.
Yes,the more I think about it, seeing how Europe has turned out today,WWII in Europe was a complete waste for America.
They need their oil.....we don’t.
Sounds like Germany wants to give the mullahs more cash on palettes to buy them off.
60 troops offered.
All just “girly boys”to the enemy.
