USA: Troop withdrawal from Germany decided


The partial withdrawal of US forces from Germany requested by US President Donald Trump (73) has now been decided. Trump approved a proposal to withdraw 9,500 of the approximately 34,500 soldiers currently in Germany, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry said on Tuesday (local time). Minister Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Mark Milley therefore discussed the plans with Trump in the White House on Monday. A schedule for the probably lengthy withdrawal was initially not given.

The Pentagon will inform Congress in the coming weeks, and then NATO partners, the ministry spokesman said. The US Congress could block the partial withdrawal desired by Trump through the military budget, or at least make it significantly more difficult. Trump is also applying for a second term in November. If he lost the election, the new president could put the plans on hold.
