German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas confirmed that Berlin would not participate in any US-led marine missions in the Strait of Hormuz, during a meeting with his Polish counterpart Jacek Czaputowicz in Warsaw on Wednesday.

"We consider the strategy of maximum pressure to be wrong. We do not want military escalation. We will continue to rely on diplomacy," Maas said with regards to Iran, during a joint press conference with Czaputowicz.

Maas is in Poland on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, a 63-day insurgency against Nazi-German occupation in 1944.

The bloody rebellion which took place in Warsaw, resulted in the death of around 18,000 fighters and over 180,000 civilians.
