Joschka Fischer is the former Vice Chancellor and Foreign Minister of Germany (1998-2005). He delivered the Green Party to the centre of German politics, leading its first participation in government, both at state level (Hesse) and at federal level.

Joschka Fischer’s tenure as Foreign Minister was a significant period in the history of German foreign affairs. He oversaw Germany’s first post WW2 active military mission in the Kosovo War and, the deployment of German troops joining the NATO intervention in Afghanistan. Fischer was a leading voice in his Government’s critical stance on the war in Iraq. In 2003, with the Foreign Ministers of France and the UK (Jack Straw), he led the EU3 negotiations with Iran, regarding its nuclear program.

In 1994, Fischer entered federal politics and became co-chairman of the Green Party’s federal parliamentary group, prior to joining Schröder’s cabinet in 1998.
