German FM criticizes Angela Merkel for blind obedience of the USA concerning arms


German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her political block mistakenly submit to requirements of the American administration concerning arms, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany Sigmar Gabriel said it in an interview which has been published on Saturday in the newspaper, APA reports quoting DW. 

 

"I am frightened by blind obedience from the The Christian Democratic Union and The Christian Social Union of HDSHSS concerning arms. Merkel, CDUCSU and even, to my horror, the Free Democratic Party, submit to Donald Trump's requirements. He demands from us to double the defensive budget to € one billion", - he said.

 

The minister noted that it is simply unimaginable: "Merkel, most likely, thinks that if she meets requirements of Trump on this matter, he will show flexibility on какойлибо to other subject. I think, it is a big mistake, he has told. Gabriel has warned that Germany is in the center of Cold War., and the world at the same time stays on a threshold of a new phase of atomic arms".

 

"Trump demands from the countries of NATO to bring contributions to defensive budgets to level in GDP and refers at the same time to the agreements reached at the summit of alliance in Wales" - he emphasized.

 

Gabriel in return repeatedly specified that only readiness to move in the direction of GDP is stated in this document, but there is no tough coordination to this size there.
