Merkel: Europe needs to boost defense within NATO

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a video released by the government in Berlin on Sunday that Europe needs to strengthen its military might within the framework of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Speaking ahead of the November 12 anniversary of the founding of the Bundeswehr, Merkel noted that European members of NATO, led by Germany and France, plan to increase cooperation in the production of weapons. She pointed out the countries are planning to work on a new tank and military aircraft together.

Merkel also added that Germany's foreign and defense policies need to be interconnected with each other, but also with policies of the European Union and NATO.
