German candidates for chancellor also travel to Washington to meet with the US president, Voigt told Dortmund daily Ruhr Nachrichten on Tuesday, adding that the visit should be an important symbol for German-American relations.

Certainly Obama’s visits to Baghdad and Kabul are more important, Voigt added, saying that Germany is still interesting for him as a country willing to work to end global conflicts.
