Security not commodity - German minister

Germany's Defence Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (pictured) criticized the United States President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw a number of troops from the country, asserting that "security is not a commodity."

"NATO is not a trade organization, and security is not a commodity," Kramp-Karrenbauer said, adding that the alliance is "founded on solidarity and trust."

Earlier, Republican members of the House Armed Services Committee urged Trump against pulling the troops out of Germany.
