BERLIN (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron used “drastic words” when he described NATO as experiencing a “brain death”, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday, saying that was not her view.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg also rejected the characterization during a joint news conference in Berlin.
“NATO remains a cornerstone of our security,” Merkel told reporters.
