US To Base 500 Additional Troops in Germany
By Staff, Agencies
The United States will deploy an additional 500 troops to Germany, War Secretary Lloyd Austin said during a visit to Berlin, marking a reversal of former President Donald Trump’s plans to withdraw about 12,000 troops from the NATO country.
“We have ceased planning [for a troop drawdown],” Austin said at a news conference with his German counterpart Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer on Tuesday.
“I think our assignment of an additional 500 troops speaks to the level of our partnership and our commitment to NATO,” he added.
