  Remarks with Foreign Minister Fischer of Germany
I had the chance to again thank the Minister for the very strong support that Germany has provided to us since the 11th of September, and as part of building the coalition.
I was pleased that Prime Minister Sharon has announced the formation of the committee that I referred to yesterday, and will welcome the visit of Assistant Secretary Burns and General Zinny in the not-too-distant future.
Minister Fischer travels through the region on a fairly regular basis, and I have always welcomed his counsel and advice on these matters, and I know that I will continue to receive that in the months ahead.

 German visa scandal rattles foreign minister | Special reports | Guardian Unlimited
Germany's foreign minister, Joschka Fischer, was yesterday at the centre of a deepening scandal over claims that he allowed thousands of migrants into Germany from the former Soviet Union on dubious visas.
The scandal appears to be the most serious to hit the Green party politician since he became Germany's foreign minister six years ago, and yesterday prompted the chancellor, Gerhard Schröder, to take the unusual step of defending his coalition colleague.
But the affair comes at a delicate time for Germany's red-green government, which has recently enjoyed a political revival and is narrowly ahead in the polls for the first time in three years.

From 1987 to 1991, Fischer served in various capacities in the Hessian State Assembly; served from 1991 to 1994 as Hessian Minister for the Environment, Energy and Federal Affairs; and from 1994 to 1998 he was Parliamentary Spokesman for the Green party in the German Bundestag, the national parliament.

 EJP | News | Germany | German foreign minister in Mideast crisis mission
BERLIN (EJP)--- Following hefty criticism from the Central Council of Jews in Germany for his “one sided approach,” to solving the current Middle East conflict, German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has begun making efforts to calm the turbulent waters in the conflict-bound region.
She was supported by Social Democrat Gernot Erler, state secretary at the foreign ministry who said in a German radio interview that all the discussions in the world today will not help the current conflict get resolved.
Siebert did, however, question whether Germany’s defence forces would have the capacity to fulfil such a mission, seeing that their capacity for such missions was stretched thin – as German soldiers were now deployed in Congo, the Balkans and in Afghanistan.

 Germany: Foreign Minister Fischer crawls before the right-wing opposition
German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer recently testified for 12 hours before a parliamentary committee of inquiry into the so-called “visa affair.” For the first time in history, a German parliamentary committee brought in the television cameras, broadcasting its proceedings in full on the Phoenix news channel.
The visa inquiry committee had been established at the behest of the opposition, in order to clarify whether the foreign ministry’s visa policy had facilitated the mass smuggling of immigrants into Germany and Europe, the enforced prostitution of women from eastern Europe and moonlighting by foreign workers.
Under foreign ministers Genscher and Kinkel in the 1990s, visa policy had been an area of conflict between freedom of travel and immigration limits.
