Speaking on the US Presidential elections, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said, “America is more than a one-man show”.
He urged both sides in the U.S. election to show restraint until the results were available, adding it was irresponsible to aggravate tensions.
“America is more than a one-man show. Anyone who continues to pour oil on the fire in a situation like this is acting irresponsibly,” Maas told Germany’s Funke media in unusually blunt language.
“Now is the time to keep a cool head until an independently determined result is available,” he added in some of his first comments on the situation.
