Special areas of interest As a consequence of their colonial past, Britain and France retain a special interest in relations with their former colonies. Germany, by contrast, as a Foreign Policy 23 consequence of its geographical position has a particular interest in relations with the countries of Eastern Europe. The Commonwealth is the main expression of Britain’s strong ties with its former colonies and bears witness of Britain’s global interests. Britain’s main regional focuses are the Near and Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa (especially South Africa and Zimbabwe), the Indian subcontinent and the Far East.

During the 45 years in which Germany was divided, the US role in Berlin and the large American military presence in West Germany served as symbols of the US commitment to West German defence. German reunification was possible only with the strong support of the United States, and even in 2003 more than 71,000 US military personnel were still stationed in Germany. Economic interests have helped consolidate this relationship: the United States is the second largest market, behind France, for German exports and the third largest source of imports into Germany (German Embassy in the United States 2003).

Between 1993 and 1995, for example, the authority of Socialist President François Mitterand was challenged by Gaullist Prime Minister Eduard Balladur, who tried to establish that Article 20 of the French constitution gives the leading role in foreign policy to the Prime Minister rather than to the President (Blunden 2000: 29). The German constitution, the Basic Law, does not clearly stipulate who or what is the actual vehicle for the implementation of foreign policy. Article 59 of the constitution establishes that the Federal President represents the Federal Republic in its international relations, but in the first years of the Federal Republic Konrad Adenauer was able to strengthen considerably the role of the Chancellor in German foreign policy.
