French President Emmanuel Macron also supported this proposal, but “some people objected,” and Merkel “did not have the strength to carry out her own line,” because everyone knew that she would soon resign, the ex-chancellor said.

At the same time, Merkel said that she did not regret the decision to no longer apply for the post of German chancellor, because she believes that new approaches were needed in foreign policy.

According to Merkel, in relations with Russia on various issues of world politics, from Transnistria and Abkhazia to Syria and Libya, she “tried new approaches again and again”, but they were not successful.
