It is 30 years since the end of the Cold War revealed “a new narrative of global power distribution,” Merkel told lawmakers in Berlin. “There is a military and economic superpower, the USA,” which Europe has been tied up with “through a system of values,” she said.

Despite all the differences, “there is still the commonality between us,” the chancellor admitted, but warned against setting one’s hopes too high when it comes to the future of US-Europe ties.

Merkel added that “we must strengthen the transatlantic bond” and gradually move towards spending 2 percent of GDP on defense, exactly what the Trump administration wants from Germany and other NATO allies
