Germans’ relation with Russians worries US president

oeurufh

While speaking at a high level NATO meeting organised in Brussels, the United States President, Donald Trump, alleges that Germans are too depended on Russia.

As per his assumption, nearly seventy per cent of the German’s total natural gas import comes from Russia. But, in reality, only little more than fifty per cent of the German’s total natural gas import comes from Russia.

Mr Trump, during the meeting session, also complains that the European countries fail to pay the NATO organisation properly. Each NATO member is supposed to pay at least two per cent of its annual GDP on defence by the year 2024. So far, except the US, Estonia, Greece, Latvia and the UK, no other NATO member has succeeded in doing so.

It seems that the US is not ready to tolerate an alley which is in no mood to pay heed to the concerns of Americans.

The US president is supposed to meet his UK counterpart and Russian counterpart in the coming days. A political expert says that the latest comments made by Mr Trump in Belgium may give an impression that the Trump’s US is more interested in building relationship with the ‘closed’ Russia and ‘going to close’ UK than the ‘open’ European Union. Is this what the US Supremo wants to convey?
