 No sane country wants to fight Russia – warns German politician 

BERLIN 14 M ay (ANA) - German politician Christian Lindner has said no “sane” country wants to fight with Russia and that Putin’s government should be given a spot around the G8 table again.

The leader of the Germany Free Democratic Party told a rally in Berlin that most nations are afraid of clashing with Putin.

The opposition party leader also suggested that Russia could have a place in the G8 again, either by being invited back or with a new G7+1 format.

The politician also said that regular EU/Russia summits should be restored.

“Russia will have its place in the ‘Europa’ house, if it abides to a set order”, he said.

Russia has become a tense topic in German politics in recent months.

Angela Merkel has taken a tougher stance on Russia relations since the alleged nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter in Salisbury.

The chancellor backed Britain and expelled four Russian diplomats following the incident.(ANA)
