March 19, 2024 (EIRNS)—In an interview with the Neue Westfälische newspaper, Chairman of the Social Democrat group in the Bundestag Rolf Mützenich reiterated what he had said in his Bundestag speech last Thursday, March 14: “The options for ending a military conflict will ultimately be political ones.”

Mützenich also spoke out in favor of holding more strategic debates instead of exclusively discussing military considerations. In his opinion, China must be persuaded to play a more active role in resolving the Ukraine war, above all due to the economic interests of the People’s Republic. Very important: He referred to the importance of Ukraine for China’s Belt and Road Initiative. China needs Ukraine and must therefore “become more active…. Politicians need to have these debates instead of just talking about where the screws are on the Taurus,” said Mützenich.
