Germany's Scholz rejects 'apartheid' term to describe Middle East conflict

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz rejected the word apartheid to describe relations between Israel and Palestine after a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

"Naturally, we have a different assessment with a view to Israeli politics, and I want to expressly say here that I do not espouse the use of the word apartheid and do not think it correctly describes the situation," said Scholz during a joint news conference with Abbas in Berlin on Tuesday.
