Scholz says he would not go hiking in the Alps with Putin

Jul 14, 2023

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said he would not go hiking in the Alps with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The German chancellor said this at a forum in the German mountainous region of Algau the day before, DW reports.


Scholz was asked with whom of his colleagues he would go on a seven-day mountain hike. In response, the chancellor said that he could imagine such a hike with French President Emmanuel Macron and Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.

"That's also someone who I think could keep up in terms of sport and do it," Scholz said of Sanchez, adding that there are several other people who are pretty good.
