German chancellor refuses to visit Washington and meet with US President


German Chancellor Olaf Scholz refused to urgently fly to Washington to meet with US President Joe Biden to discuss a "massage" of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border. Der Spiegel from Germany informed readers about this with some anxiety, referring to its informants.


The publication notes that the head of the German government pointed to a very busy work schedule, so he cannot visit the United States in the near future. It is specified that the parties concerned are now trying to arrange a personal meeting between Biden and Scholz in mid-February. At the same time, it was emphasized that the German federal government refused to give official comments to the publication.

We remind you that a significant part of the German press takes pro-American positions, and does not defend the interests of the FRG. That is why some journalists in Germany are extremely outraged that "Scholz did not drop everything and rush at the snap of his fingers across the ocean to Biden, losing his shoes."

It should be added that on January 20, the American edition of The Wall Street Journal reported that US CIA Director William Burns paid an unannounced visit to Berlin a few days before the official arrival of the head of the US State Department, Anthony Blinken. During the "secret" conversation, Burns allegedly informed Scholz and German intelligence about possible scenarios for the further development of events around Russia and Ukraine.

On January 20, in the process of communication, Blinken and Scholz declared "unshakable support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine." They also expressed a "joint commitment" to imposing tough measures against the Russian Federation if Moscow launches "aggression" against Kiev.

At the same time, the American Bloomberg agency learned on January 17 from high-ranking US officials that the “German problem” was being seriously discussed in the White House. Washington doubts Berlin's readiness to support anti-Russian restrictions in the event of the aforementioned "invasion" on Ukrainian soil.

      I don't understand what's bothering you so much? Or are you from Spiegel? The chancellor simply did not fly "on the carpet." Although most likely he does not want to get into the US covid problem. The level of morbidity and mortality is too high there ... And although planes are not yet attacked there, they are limited to trains. But who will give a guarantee ....?

        - Hello!!! - And why wouldn't it "mangle" me ???
        - When the coronavirus pandemic (and all its various "derivatives") is raging all over the world - I personally, at a very high risk of catching a deadly infection and ending up in a "plastic burial bag" - still do my job and all the duties that are entrusted to me! !!
        - And some state "person-chancellor" - simply ignores the performance of his duties because of the "covid problem" !!!
        - In general, it’s very strange for me to see - how suddenly many of the locals (including herself - ms. gorskova.ir (Irina Gorskova) - including) - suddenly “harnessed themselves” for this chancellor (and for Rahr - too )... - This is "into" - a whole staff of Russian relatives, or what ??? - Such a whole support group!!! - Or is it a whole real department from "Spiegel" ???
        - Well, doa...

          Yeees. It definitely won't bother you. More like tying it in a knot. How did some German rank dare not obey the order and not appear before the eyes of the owner .... But I can please. The highest ranks of the military sphere forced their colleague to resign for his truth about the ownership of the Crimea. So there are those who you like.

            - Well, yes... - So what???
            - Really - I have no joy and - no sadness ...
            - Yes, and my advice to you - it's better to turn your "sadness" to another region - to Central Asia ... - Namely - to Kazakhstan ... - That's where sadness is - so sadness !!!

              GoreIsperd, calm down already! Stop gassing puddles! No matter how I look, no comment from Gorenina, it’s a bunch of their crazy thoughts, sucked out from under the dirty nails of the right foot, but presented as an indisputable truth, a kind of revelation that is not available to anyone. I repeat, do not present your delirium as a deep analysis. Your attempts are ridiculous and already rather tired.

    Did he really decide to hammer a bolt on the Chancellor-Act? ... Something is hard to believe.
    PS The "Chancellor Act" is a document that until now every German Federal Chancellor must sign before taking the oath. This is nothing more than a statement by the German authorities about their obligations towards allies - in particular, towards the United States.

          And what does this prove? Fake is normal.
          Then it's better to use the official information. This is the official response of the Chancellor-Amta to the one delivered above. Merkel the question of the existence of the "Chancellor Act".:

          im Auftrag der Bundeskanzlerin am November 19, 2007
          Angela Merkel
          Sehr geehrter Herr Seppelt,

          vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage, die wir im Auftrag der Bundeskanzlerin beantworten.

          Der "geheime Staatsvertrag", den Sie erwähnen, ist dem Reich der Legenden zuzuordnen. Diesen Staatsvertrag gibt es nicht. Und die Bundeskanzlerin musste selbstverständlich auch nicht auf Anordnung der Alliierten eine sogenannte "Kanzlerakte" unterschreiben, bevor sie ihren Amtseid ablegte. Die erbetene kurze Antwort lautet daher: Nein.

          With kind regards,

          Your

          Press and Information Office of the Federal Government

          https://www.direktzu.de/kanzlerin/messages/mussten-sie-diese-kanzlerakte-unterzeichnen-13569

          And here is a detailed alignment for you to expose your fake:

      There was an article in the bild that Scholz was planning a meeting in Moscow. He probably wants to sign the "chancellor act" with Putin)

      In order to sign, it is not worth flying anywhere; over decades of joint work, this has completely turned into a pure formality. Who knows what Boris Nikolayevich once had to sign and sell for a glass of tea.

    Biden decided to dilute Khokhlyad cannon fodder with German? It is unlikely that it will come out, they will support morally.

      If only "frozen German meat", the Germans definitely do not want to fight, they are required to abandon the "totalitarian" gas, i.e. freezes itself.

    It's all about England. If she had not left the EU, then Scholz would have gone to the States. And so - pipes! Now there is no strong overseer for Germany in the EU. And she is the richest. In addition, after Afghanistan, the American roof leaked. You either need to patch it up or get a new one. The States demand that the Germans patch themselves, and the Germans expect the States to patch up. So Scholz is not going to the carpet yet. Wait, they will remember that it was not the States that took Berlin! They will say - you were not standing here!

    Yes, Scholz really has things to do more important than discussing these nonsense about Ukraine. Moreover, Biden probably has plans to load Germany with something. In figs, does Scholz need it?

    and the commander-in-chief of the German Navy resigned after he said that Crimea would not return to Ukraine and that the hysteria about Russia's plans was nonsense. Perhaps he was asked to say this in order to generate a resounding resignation later. This is a serious step, a signal to all of Europe and the United States.

      Moreover, he did this immediately before the start of large NATO exercises in the Mediterranean.
      It looks like a demonstrative attempt to withdraw Germany from participation in these exercises - this would symbolize Germany's unwillingness to support the American policy of confrontation with Russia.
      Props to this man.

    Maybe this is not the topic, but let me express my respect to the German commander of the German Navy Kai-Achim Schönbach! It's better to be retired than to serve crazy women. Smart man. He moved away from the madness in time, which will begin in two years ... one and a half ...
