At the beginning of Scholz’ term of office, Germany holds the G7 presidency. The Chancellor is now one of the central power figures on the world stage. In the next ten days alone he will meet the heads of state or government of the USA, France, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine and Russia. To this end, negotiations are taking place at chief adviser level in the Normandy format with Kiev and Moscow. Scholz must prove to Biden that he is a trustworthy partner, defend Germany’s reputation as an anchor of stability in Europe and establish a relationship of equals with Putin. If he can do that, he is the strong man in Europe. If it fails, Germany’s reputation as an anchor of stability will be ruined. A tough test for the Federal Chancellor just two months after taking office.
