Ursula von der Leyen, Defense Minister, said on Friday that Germany is ready to scale up military spending, as demanded by Donald Trump in return for Washington’s continued commitment to NATO.

“We Germans want to accept this challenge, and we want to accept it as Europeans,” Von der Leyen told an audience including her U.S. counterpart James Mattis.
