Germany: Break down of coalition talks 'regretful' — Green Party Green Party politician Katrin Goring-Eckardt said she viewed the recent break down of coalition talks between the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Green Party as regretful, during a joint press statement with Green Party leader Cem Ozdemir in Berlin on Monday. Goring-Eckardt went on to say that... Еще the Green Party were still willing to take on the responsibility they owe to «the country» and to «the voters». Both Ozdemir and Goring-Eckardt reiterated that making compromises is an integral part of a democracy. The press statement comes after the Free Democratic Party (FDP) recently pulled out of the so-called 'Jamaica' coalition negotiations. FDP leader Christian Lindner claimed that there was no «basis of trust» between the negotiating parties.
