Germany and France are calling for an “alliance for multilateralism” among like-minded countries to defend the rules-based world order against growing nationalism and power politics, Anadolu Agency reports.

In a joint article for the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper published Thursday, Germany and France’s foreign ministers warned that the multilateral order -- under which alliances of countries pursue common goals -- is experiencing its gravest crisis since its emergence after the Second World War.

“We firmly believe that a new commitment to multilateralism, an alliance for multilateralism, is more necessary than ever if we are to stabilize the rules-based world order, to uphold its principles and to adapt it to new challenges where necessary,” Heiko Maas and his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian said.

“We therefore want to establish a global network of like-minded states which are convinced that pursuing legitimate, national interests and protecting the collective property of humankind are fully compatible, not mutually exclusive.”
