15/05/2020




İrem GÖL -TDO- According to the Reuters News Agency, the U.S. ambassador in Berlin has accused Germany of undermining NATO’s nuclear deterrent, taking aim at Chancellor Angela Merkel’s junior coalition partners after some of their leaders called for nuclear disarmament.

Ambassador Richard Grenell wrote: “Instead of undermining the solidarity that forms the basis of NATO’s nuclear deterrence, it is now time for Germany to meet its commitments to its allies and to continuously invest in NATO’s nuclear participation” in an opinion published in the German newspaper, Die Welt. He added: “Germany’s political leadership especially that of the Social Democrats must now make it clear the federal republic is honouring these commitments and standing by its allies.”

The relations between Germany and the U.S have been strained during the presidency of Trump. The Us President Donald Trump has pressured Germany to raise its defence spending and accused Germany of being captive of Russia due to its energy reliance.
