Germany plans to formally apologise to Windhoek for the genocide of indigenous Namibians a century ago, a foreign ministry spokesperson said on Wednesday, but added that the move would not carry any obligation of reparations.
"We are working towards a joint government declaration with the following elements: common discussions on the historical events and a German apology for the action in Namibia," Sawsan Chebli told reporters.
The joint declaration with the Namibian government can serve as a basis for a parliamentary resolution, she said, adding, however, that the step would not translate into legal repercussions for Germany.
