GERMAN PRESS: THE AMERICAN-GERMAN FRIENDSHIP CAME TO AN END
U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo suddenly canceled his visit to Germany this week, where he was to meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel. This decision provoked the journalist of «Sueddeutsche Zeitung» to urge Berlin to develop a strategy for the era that will come after trump. According to Daniel Brosler, the abrupt cancellation of us Secretary of state’s visit to Berlin is difficult to justify. «Pompeo showed that in the world of American diplomacy there is rudeness and arrogance,» the journalist said.
Daniel Brosler noted that it is unclear what issues are «more urgent» than the planned visit to Berlin, but expressed the belief that much of what was not so long ago praised as German-American friendship, today «torn to shreds» two years after the inauguration of us President Donald Trump.
The material of the publication «Sueddeutsche Zeitung» says that the foreign policy of us President pursues only the interests of America and sometimes goes against the interests of American allies.
«In many cases, the US is no longer an ally, but an opponent against whom it is necessary to create alliances. This is the case with the Paris climate agreement and, above all, with the nuclear agreement with Iran. Our friendship has come to an end,» the journalist stated
