Bavaria slams U.S. decision to withdraw troops from Germany
“We very much regret the U.S. government’s decision. Unfortunately, this puts a burden on the German-American relationship,” Markus Soeder said.
He added that the U.S. troop withdrawal served no clear military purpose, and would even weaken the NATO alliance and the United States itself.
“We are now waiting to see if the decision will last,” Soeder said in reference to the U.S. presidential election in November. ■
