Secretary of State Pompeo Meets US Troops in Germany

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited U.S. troops based in Germany, Thursday, November 7.
Pompeo traveled to Germany to participate in events to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The United States and Germany are reaffirming the strategic partnership and alliance under NATO, rejecting French President Emmanuel Macron’s view that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is experiencing “brain death.”

“I think NATO remains an important, critical, perhaps historically, one of the most critical strategic partnerships in all of recorded history,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday at Leipzig, Germany, during a news conference with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

“I do not think NATO is brain-dead,” added Maas.
