hamburg - Premier Rutte has condemned the excessive violence of Left Radicals in Hamburg. This he said today against this newspaper at the G20 summit in Germany: 'It is good for democracy to hold this summit here.'
For many days, and especially last night, anarchist runners throw stones, bottles and fireworks to the police. Cars and barricades were on fire, many shops were looted. 'Very bad that those lazy have misunderstood. '
Nearly two hundred agents were injured, some by steel bullets from a catapult. The Hermandad was present with twenty thousand men, floods and armored vehicles, but did not succeed in order to guarantee public order in the famous Schanzenviertel last night.
'We can not keep such a top in the countryside,' said Rutte. 'Then we would capitulate for that crazy. And the Netherlands has proven at the atomic summit in The Hague that we can organize such meetings in a city. 'Although the G20 is only a talking club and does not know any binding appointments, Rutte considers the meeting important.
At the G20 summit for world leaders, the Netherlands was invited by Merkel Chancellor. During a classical concert in the brand new Elbphilharmonie, Rutte was in favor of President Putin: 'After the conclusion of Beethoven's ninth, I could talk to him about the MH17 disaster and the criminal proceedings in the Netherlands. '
Furthermore, Rutte confirmed that President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, took his seat on the chair of heads of state and government leaders. However, she only has an advisory role in the White House. With President Erdogan, he did not talk about the entry ban for the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister. That should happen at a lower diplomatic level.
