Merkel Says Europe Can No Longer Rely On Others


German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europeans could no longer completely rely on others, and must take their fate into their own hands. She told an election rally in Munich on May 28 that her experiences "in the last few days," during which she attended NATO and G7 meetings, had convinced her of this. Her comments have been widely interpreted as meaning that after the U.S. election and Brexit vote, Washington and London were less reliable partners -- though she insisted "friendship" would be maintained with both countries.
