Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced on Tuesday that the US Military will increase its presence in Germany. The plan is focused on integrating the US into the NATO alliance in a reversal from the previous administration’s plan to withdraw troops from the country.
The US is planning to extend its ties with Germany to propel its dominance in the world by collaboration with allies. “The planned increase in US personnel underscores our commitment in Germany, and to the entire NATO alliance,” said Lloyd Austin, Defense Secretary to the US.Austin’s comments came after a surge of Russian presence on the Ukrainian borders which is creating havoc across the world’s dominant forces. According to the White House, the engagement of Russian troops has been extensively high for the first time since 2014 when the peninsula of Crimea was annexed.
The hindsight of the journalists was that it was a discontent message to Russia, to which Lloyd Austin replied stubbornly and said that don’t spread false narratives. He asserted that it is just a supporting role in NATO’s force and a message that the US troops will defend lines in Germany to the fullest extent. The US values its relationship with its European allies, and it asserted that it is going to further accommodate good relations with those countries.
