U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell : The German Commitments are not enough

in Spite of the German Commitments for a further increase in the defence expenditure of the United States to show that they are dissatisfied with it. "The German Commitments, the defence expenditure to 1.5 per cent (of the gross increase domestic product), will not suffice. The Nato required 2% up to 2024," said the US Ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, the "world on Sunday" a few days before a Meeting of Nato defense Ministers in Brussels. "America remembers its great ally Germany it is only the fact that these are not the times, to weaken Nato or to undermine. Russia is on the doorstep, everyone should be clear that the Nato must now be strengthened.“

In its annual strategy report for the Nato, the German government promises to the allies, however, to leave the already promised 1.5 percent until 2024, but the achieved increase in the years after 2024 to continue. The commitment should obviously appease, especially US President Donald Trump, the Germany urges spending for months to higher defense. However, it avoids the Federal government in the report - different than usual -that Nato take concrete steps to increase the defence expenditure to report to 1.5 percent.

Grenell that "Germany still has not presented a convincing Plan that sets out a path to the Two-percent target". Of course he did understand, that the Germans spend their tax money "at home instead of the military budget". The American tax payers out of as well. Speculation that the US could leave Trump possibly Nato, rejected Grenell: "The United States feel Nato is fully committed." (dpa)
