He said the international order of the future would be decided in the region.

“We aim to be involved in the responsibility of maintaining the rules-based international order,’’ Maas said.

Germany was part of the international effort to monitor United Nations sanctions on North Korea and was interested in building partnerships in the region.

Government sources had also recently pointed to China’s dominant behaviour in the region.

The frigate Bayern (Bavaria) was leaving the port of Wilhelmshaven on Monday for a six-month deployment on the seas lying between the Horn of Africa, Australia, and Japan.
