BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government has a “very high level of confidence” in European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Friday.

Seibert was responding to a question about media reports about Juncker’s health. Juncker was seen stumbling after a photo call during the NATO summit in Brussels in what the Commission said was an episode of acute leg pain caused by sciatica.
