DIE LINKE mourns for Martin McGuiness who passed away aged 66.
With him one of the architects of the Good Friday Agreement left us; an agreement he engagedly inspirited as Minister and Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, thus having been an essential guarantor for the peace in Northern Ireland.
Today, Minister of Foreign Affairs Sigmar Gabriel will welcome the Foreign Ministers for the G20 meeting in Bonn. Even though interest focusses on Trumps new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, DIE LINKE confirms its demand to expel Turkey from participation. “Instead of making himself the figurehead for the accomplices of the Trump of Bosporus, Foreign Minister and host Gabriel should take a clear stand for human rights and democracy.” declares Bernd Riexinger, chair person of DIE LINKE.
