German chancellor tells election rally in Munich that Europe must take its fate into its own hands after ‘unsatisfactory’ G7 talks
Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, has warned that the EU could no longer completely depend on Britain and the US and “must take its fate into its own hands”.
Faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump’s presidency, Merkel told an election rally in Munich on Sunday: “The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.”
