Germany: Steinmeier hands out dismissal letters and praises outgoing govt.

German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier handed out dismissal letters to Chancellor Angela Merkel and her cabinet ministers, in a symbolic ceremony ending their service in the outgoing government in Berlin on Tuesday. Steinmeier praised them for their work dedicated to issues ranging the refugee crisis to Brexit. He asserted that they had “managed to maintain a stable course, also despite... Еще intense debate within the federal government” and had taken a decisive role “as an actor at European level — in the common and unconditional will to hold together peace and unity of the European Union.” “You have also become internationally responsible — in crises and conflicts from Ukraine to Mali, in politics against Iran and Turkey, to the bloody civil war in Syria,” he said. Merkel however is yet to form a new government, and so the Cabinet is set to continue working until the new coalition is ready and ministers are appointed.
