Germany will invest in peacekeeping

An increase in defense spending given the aggressive policy of Russia will not replace peacekeeping as the main goal of Germany’s policy.

This was stated by German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock on the occasion of Peacemaker’s Day, Ukrinform reports.

“Peacekeeping remains our main goal even at this moment when we supply weapons,” the minister said.

At the same time, she repeated that no one would accept peace imposed on Ukraine.

According to the minister, the situation in Ukraine shows that military investments and funds for civilian needs function only together. “Yes, Ukraine needs heavy weapons, and we have just delivered self-propelled howitzers and rocket launchers. But it also needs food, humanitarian aid, hospitals and water supplies. And in the long run, just when we hope the war is finally over; it is then that Ukraine will increasingly need civilian infrastructure,” the head of the Foreign Ministry said.

At the beginning of her speech, Burbock recalled her first visit to Ukraine in January of this year, when she visited the headquarters of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission. Then, according to her, it was still unknown what would happen in the following months, but it was clear how important the OSCE SMM was. After 120 days of the war of conquest in Ukraine, it remains unknown when the OSCE observers will be able to return to Ukraine at all. At the same time, Burbock said she wants to expand the work of this mission.

Around the world, more than 2,300 German representatives perform peacekeeping tasks.

The minister called them “the face of German foreign policy.”
