Washington reminds Berlin to increase military spending

-

Defense Secretary Dr. Mark T. Esper called on Germany to invest more money in defense during a meeting with that country’s new defense minister at the Pentagon.

“With the largest economy in Europe, we believe Germany is in a strong position to make an investment to bolster the capabilities for the alliance,” Esper said before today’s meeting with German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer.

Kramp-Karrenbauer said the German government is aware of its responsibilities. “I also want to make clear that we do stand by our commitment that we have made in the NATO framework – for example, when it comes to financial burden-sharing and developing military capabilities,” she added through a translator. “I will do everything in my power as the minister of defense … to do just that.”
