“As the US has withdrawn from the international stage, nobody has turned to the European Union,” German Foreign Minister says

As the US has withdrawn from the international stage, nobody has turned to the European Union,” German Foreign Minister Gabriel argued quoted by Deutsche Welle, claiming that the bloc no longer stood for a specific set of values and accusing members of treating the EU “as if they have a second one in their hip pocket.” “We could stand right now in front of a new nuclear arms race in Europe,” Gabriel said, unless European countries stand up for the progressive ideals they claim to represent.
