Germany refuses to spend 2 percent on NATO
Sigmar Gabriel has revealed Germany REFUSES to achieve Natos defence spending target of 2 percent, Express reports. He instead called for money to be spent on building a strong European defence union.
Answering questions after his speech, he said: “I consider the figure difficult”. He said if Germany spent 2 percent of its GDP on Nato defence every year for ten years, it would spend more than €70 million every year.
He added: "I'm not quite sure after ten years all European partners would consider that a good idea."
