Maas expenditure contradicts criticism of German defense

In Washington, celebrates the NATO this week, the 70-year anniversary. However, after the renewed U.S. criticism of Germany and its defence Minister Maas was hardly time to celebrate feel.

in Front of the celebrations for the NATO anniversary of Federation has rejected the foreign Minister, Heiko Maas, once again, criticism from allies on the German defense spending. "I know, our budget process is to understand for outsiders is sometimes hard to," he said in Washington. "But we have clearly known to invest more money in defence, and we keep our word."

The members of NATO have committed to 2014, the defence spending up to 2024, the target of two percent of gross domestic product to move. Germany has only 1.5 percent until 2024. In the new medium-term financial planning of the Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz (SPD), but even that doesn't see how this is to be achieved. It provides for 1.26 percent for the year 2023. Accordingly, the defense spending by 2023 to 2024 would have to be increased by a two-digit billion amount, if the objective is to be achieved.
