NORTH KOREA - On the Brink of War - GERMANY

While South Korea, China and Japan are struggling for a common position in the affair of the sunken South Korean warship, North Korea is far from acknowledging its supposed role in this affair. Instead, North Korean TV is launching stances of an immediate war between the two countries if only a single provocation whatsoever follows preceding accusations from Seoul. China is yet undecided how to react. In the frame of a long alliance with North Korea during Cold War times, Prime Minister Wen Jia Bao finds it hard to support the South Korean position together with all the consequences this might include.

German Government under Pressure

June 2, 2010: Today's opinion poll shows that 51% of German citizens accept President Koehler's decision to resign from his office. Most German sources acknowledge Koehler's fundamental intention to become a president of the people.

Another problem to handle for German Chancellor Merkel after local elections in Nordrhein-Westfalen where the voters of Germany's federal state second in size voted for a 10% loss of the chancellor's party and a change of the local government.
