Pence says Germany ‘must do more’ on defense spending

US Vice President Mike Pence strongly criticizes Germany at NATO’s 70th anniversary gathering, saying the ally needed to pay more on defense and end a pipeline plan with Russia.

“Germany must do more. And we cannot ensure the defense of the West if our allies grow dependent on Russia,” Pence says, calling the Nord Stream 2 gas project “simply unacceptable.”
