Germany to Increase NATO Defense Spending Amid US Pressure to Pay Fair Share

NATO spending target not some'fetish for Germany Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has acknowledged that the Iran nuclear deal "certainly has weaknesses" but says it should be preserved.

The best way to address global concern about Iran's role in the region and its ballistic missile programme is within the framework of the nuclear deal.

Merkel used her annual budget speech to Parliament to affirm Berlin's position on the issue, listing the USA pullout among several pieces of "troubling news" - along with recent chemical attacks in Syria, violence in Gaza and daily cease-fire breaches in Ukraine.


On Tuesday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that after talks with the foreign ministers of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Iran in Brussels, the sides had agreed to work out practical solutions in response to the U.S. withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the Iran nuclear deal, within the next few weeks. Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange for removal of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said before the meeting in Brussels that "the United Kingdom and our European partners continue to view the nuclear deal as vital for our shared security, and remain fully committed to upholding it". The situation will not improve after Washington's withdrawal from the deal, she added.

He was due to hold talks later in Brussels with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany.
