To please Biden, Merkel pledged to increase German military spending

This was reported by the DPA agency on Sunday, February 7, citing data that Berlin handed over to the North Atlantic Alliance apparatus.

It is known that Germany has long ignored US demands to increase military spending, which irritated Donald Trump. It is noteworthy that Berlin revised its position just after the White House rotation.

Whereas in 2020 Germany’s military spending was 51.39 billion euros or 1.57% of GDP, in 2021 the government will raise spending to a record 53.03 billion euros.

NATO, on the other hand, expressed hope that the German government’s decision would resolve disputes with Washington.
