EU needs NATO, US - Kramp-Karrenbauer

Germany's Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (pictured) stated on Tuesday that the European Union still depends on the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to guarantee safety.

"The idea of a strategic autonomy of Europe goes too far if it nurtures the illusion that we could ensure Europe's security, stability, and prosperity without NATO and the US," the official said.

Kramp-Karrenbauer noted that it would take decades to build up the military that could take NATO's and US place.
