It has been shown once again, that it's worth it to fight for your convictions, and what has now been agreed upon is a very clear and durable agreement for the future... Еще. This clear agreement, all three points of which you will hear about soon, corresponds with my ideas, will allow me to continue to carry out my role as Minister of Interior, Building, and Community Minister,» Seehofer said.
