    BERLIN, May 26 (KUNA) -- German Defense Minister Thomas Maiziere stunned German public opinion here Thursday when he did not exclude the possibility of sending German troops to hot spots like Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia or Sudan.
    Maiziere said, in a statement to the website of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, that, "it is expected that Germany will receive demands for sending troops to countries like Pakistan, Yemen or Sudan," noting Germany's response to such calls, "will depend on the nature of tasks, and to what extent the governmental coalition and opposition parties will agree on sending these troops." Following taking up his new tasks some few weeks ago, Maiziere submitted his plans on restructuring the German army, and turning it from a one relying on the compulsory service into a professional regular army.
