Angela Merkel: Europe Can No Longer Rely on US Protection

11 May, 2018, 04:47 | Author: Angel Logan

"I think it's a mistake and that's why we Europeans have chose to remain in the nuclear agreement of 2015", he told German national broadcasters ARD and Deutsche Welle, according to remarks released by the French presidency.

His statement Merkel made after the US President Donald trump has announced the release of the nuclear deal with Iran, and European the parties expressed readiness to continue to perform.

Germany must wean itself off the "fetish" of fiscal conservatism if it has ambitions to become a leading force for European renewal, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday.

"Rather, Europe needs to take its fate into its own hands". "That is the task for the future".

Rouhani did not mention Israel's strikes early on Thursday in Syria, or those against the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, also on Thursday.

Iran continues to develop its missile program as it is not a part of the JCPOA, which is sharply criticized by the United States and Israel.

The Middle East was becoming very unsafe, said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, adding that there was no "Plan B" in response to Trump's move and that France wanted to keep the accord alive even without Washington on board.

Dr Merkel called for restraint from both countries.

"The escalations of the past few hours show us that it is truly about war and peace".

As the French leader was celebrated for his contribution to European unity, he gave perhaps the clearest sign yet of the tensions emerging in the alliance with Merkel, around which he has built much of his European strategy. "Other powers. haven't kept their word", Macron said, without naming a country directly.

"We come from different political pasts, but we find common ground, and that is the magic of Europe", she said.

Speaking after Merkel, Macron said that "We should not be waiting, we must do something right now".
