  • Emmanuel Macron Donald Trump and Angela Merkel

The German leader made similar comments last spring after the us president brought his "America First" message to a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, accusing them of not spending enough to their own defense.

According to a report in Arab News, Hassan Rouhani the corresponding statement was made during a conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Europe can no longer rely on the United States for military protection, German leader Angela Merkel said on Thursday as the continent's leaders absorb the shock dealt by the Trump administration's decision to quit the Iran nuclear deal. "Europe needs to take his own destiny into their own hands, this is a task for the future", she said.

Ford suspends all F-150 production after fire at supplier
The automaker has two plants that build its F-150 pickup truck, and both are shutdown due to a parts shortage caused by that fire. Both local Unifor presidents said it's a temporary change as they continue to evaluate the fire's impact on local production.

Pointing to the civil war in Syria, Merkel said that numerous global conflicts today were flaring on the doorstep of Europe. Despite the push for improved defence cooperation, the process remained in its infancy, said the German leader.

This statement comes a day after Israel attacked multiple Iranian military targets in Syria in response to a failed attempt to fire missiles into Israeli territory. "And it will be existentially necessary to make progress here because the nature of conflicts has completely changed since the end of the Cold War".

Expectations of a flare-up in the Middle East were stoked by President Donald Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The series will be MLB's first-ever regular-season games in Europe. We could not be happier that Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. has been able to make this a reality.

But they are at odds on economics and finance, with Merkel reluctant to take steps - such as setting up a euro zone budget - that might lead to Germany carrying greater liability for other euro zone countries' problems.

"The escalation in recent hours has shown us that it's really about war and peace", Chancellor Angela Merkel warned, during her address at the International Charlemagne Prize award ceremony in Aachen. "And I can only call on all sides to exercise restraint here".

Macron echoed Merkel, saying European nations should not allow "other major powers, including allies" to "put themselves in a situation to decide our diplomacy [and] security for us".
