Angela Merkel remarks NATO importance for German interests

Nov.27, Chancellor Angela Merkel said that maintaining the NATO defense alliance is of utmost importance to Germany and Europe. “Maintaining NATO today is even more in our own interests than it was in the Cold War — or at least as important as it was in the Cold War,” Merkel said during a debate on Germany annual budget in the German parliament. “Because, and the Foreign minister said this yesterday, Europe currently cannot defend itself on its own”.
