  • Germany’s new government of center-left Social Democrats (SPD), Greens, and business-oriented Free Democrats (FDP) has vowed to “Dare to Make More Progress.”
  • With regard to the situation in Turkey, the new coalition sees many “worrying domestic developments and foreign policy tensions” there and therefore does not want to open new accession talks to the EU.
  • The German armed services will, in future, be able to arm their drones —  subject to “binding and transparent terms and the consideration of ethical and security aspects.”
