Germany's new foreign minister on a EU charm offensive

Steinmeier at his most charming

On Tuesday this week Germany's new socialist foreign minister told journalists in Brussels that he would launch a new EU charm offensive:

Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Tuesday he hoped to rectify his country's image in Europe

On Thursday Herr Steinmeier apparently launched his charm offensive:

"We must not avoid confrontation with populists, nationalists, with these brainless people who call themselves eurosceptics"

We are looking forward to the next steps in the Steinmeier charm offensive ...
