for a Long time was pretty unclear, as it keeps the Federal government with a military operation in the Strait of Hormuz: If you asked, the answer usually consists of three Parts: There is no question; it is not yet clear what is planned; now is the hour of diplomacy.
it is Only since Tuesday more or less randomly known to the public was that there has been a request from the United States to assist in the securing of Maritime traffic in the strategically important Strait that moves the Federal government out of their passivity. With its clear ” no ” to a US-led mission, said the Federal foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, now, after all, what will the Federal government.
What exactly is this ‘ no ‘ means now …
… for the U.S. Mission and the situation in the Strait of Hormuz?
The preparations for the American application to run on high tours. Last week, a troop of a conference held in Tampa, Florida. On Wednesday, representatives of the American and British forces in Bahrain, spoke about the planned protection of tankers. The area is already marked out: the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, Gulf of Oman and the Strait of Bab al-Mandab. That Germany, and probably France, are doing, will not prevent the Mission. If necessary, the British and Americans can deal with it alone.
For de-escalation in the conflict with Iran, the use is not safe. The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has already said that he would think of it as a provocation.
… for a possible EU Mission?
Germany plans to coordinate with France on how to proceed. Theoretically, a European Mission, in parallel to the U.S.-led would be possible. The foreign politician Norbert Röttgen calls for exactly that. “The reasons for having a European Mission on the Gulf remain in place,” says the Chairman of the foreign Affairs Committee in the Bundestag. He is urging Germany and France to take the initiative. But it is likely to be difficult, about the quickly consensus in the European Union. And a use without the consent of the EU as a Whole would raise, in Germany, constitutional problems. Two parallel, completely separate operations from Nato countries are also difficult to imagine.
