The diplomatic method of Russian President Vladimir Putin in Syria, Libya and Iran provides him with influence in the Middle East, said the head of the Munich Security Conference, German diplomat Wolfgang Ishinger on ZDF.

“In order to have influence in the region, you need both things – Putin knows it, US President Donald Trump knows it, I hope that we Europeans also know this. They need the political power of persuasion, clever diplomacy, and if necessary, military replenishment. This is the method by which Putin in Syria, Libya and, of course, on the Iranian issue ensures his influence. Because everyone knows – he can do it differently”, – Ishinger said.
