German FM praises relations with Saudi

The German Minister for Foreign Affairs, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has told Al Arabiya News the Middle East needs to break through the cycle of sectarian confrontation if it is to reach a long lasting peace. Speaking in an interview with Al Arabiya, he said he was aware of the concerns voiced over Iran’s ambitions and added that Germany was “under no illusions” about Iran’s involvement in Syria or its support of Hezbollah. And he said he did not believe the nuclear deal would automatically solve these problems. But the minister said he remained hopeful that deal reached in Vienna would provide “more, not less” security for the region. Steinmeier recently berated the Israelis for the criticism of the deal, saying that they should not be so critical of the deal and take a closer look. Here, the minister speaks with Al Arabiya News about his beliefs, hopes and concerns for the Middle East and Germany’s relationship with the Gulf.
