Chancellor Olaf Scholz gave way to his Argentinian counterpart questioned about Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht. He reacted in astonishment. Previously, it offered gas and hydrogen to Germany.

BDuring a joint press conference on Wednesday with State Guest Alberto Fernandez, the President of Argentina, Chancellor Olaf Scholz was also asked about his assessment of the helicopter flight by Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht and his son.

Since another question about arms deliveries had already been asked, Scholz gave way to his Argentinian counterpart Fernandez with a smile on his face. He reacted with a laugh: “Thank God I don’t have to answer that question, otherwise it would be really tricky. I’d rather not give my opinion on it,” he said – and asked the reporter to repeat his other question. “I was so impressed with the second question that I forgot the first one,” he joked.

Later, Scholz finally commented on Lambrecht with a sentence. “As you know, the Ministry of Defense has announced that all regulations have been complied with,” the Chancellor said.

“A war with consequences for the whole world”

Scholz had previously said, among other things, that Ukraine would still have to deal with the consequences of the war for “a hundred years” because of the explosive devices that remained everywhere. “Anyone who lives in Germany knows that the bombs that fell here during World War II are still being discovered today.”

The Russian war of aggression is not only a war against Ukraine, “but also a war with consequences for the whole world”, added the Chancellor, referring to the rise in energy and food prices and the threat of hunger crises in the poorest countries.

Fernandez confirmed it: “Latin America is suffering the consequences of the war. Sanctions against Russia have consequences not only in Russia, but all over the world.”

There are already areas of Central America that have become desert due to climate change, where agriculture can no longer be practiced. And the war has driven up food and energy prices. “It is no longer a problem between NATO and Russia or between Ukraine and Russia. It is a problem for the world. The war must be stopped.

He also explained that Argentina, with its large deposits of shale gas, also wants to supply Germany with LNG gas. “We have a lot to offer,” including green and blue hydrogen. “Germany has been investing in Argentina for a long time and can trust us.” After Spain, Berlin was the second stop on Fernandez’s journey to Europe. He will then travel to Paris to meet French President Emmanuel Macron.
