First the chief, then the Deputy : Pence attacked expenditure of Germany for defense

US Vice-President Mike Pence has expenditure of Germany once again for its defense and cooperation with Russia for Pipeline project Nord Stream 2 criticized. "Germany needs to do more," said Pence on Wednesday at a conference for 70. Anniversary of the founding of Nato in Washington. "And we can not ensure the defence of the West, when our allies of Russia are dependent on," added Pence with a view to the Pipeline project.

U.S. President Donald Trump criticized Germany regularly due to low defence expenditure, and calls up to 2024, an increase of "at least two percent" of the economic performance. The aim of the Federal government, 1.5 percent. Trump had not only said Tuesday that Germany pay as much as it should.

Pence said it was "simply unacceptable", if Europe's largest economy, ignore the threat from Russia "and its own self-defense and our defense is neglected". Pence also criticized that Germany is doing by Nord Stream 2 dependent on Russia. The Pipeline project would make the German economy "literally a prisoner of Russia".
