dortmund - Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder criticized his policy on Washington on the party congress of Social Democratic SPD Angela Merkel on Sunday. Schröder believes that Merkel's current Chancellor Merkel is unbelievable in her statements about a desired independent course of Europe, apart from the US.
Schröder was the German government leader from 1998 to 2005, reminding himself that Merkel then pursued Washington in everything, including in the Gulf War. When Schröder refused to join the US-British attack on Iraq in 2003, the Christian Democrat Merkel felt to be anti-American.
Merkel is Schröder's successor and reigns for over 11.5 years. In September, Germany will elect a new parliament. The SPD is in opinion polls far behind Merkels CDU. Partijbons Schröder must encourage members at the Dortmund conference. The former President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, is the leader of the SPD. He hopes to become the fourth SPD Chancellor, but according to opinion polls, he now has little chance.
