German politicians respond to Macron: The problem now is to ensure European security and prevent Russia

December 5 According to a report by DFB-Pressin on December 4, Macron’s views on a possible future security architecture in Europe have been opposed by some German politicians.

Niels Schmid, a foreign policy expert of the Social Democratic Party, said in the Sunday edition of the German newspaper Le Monde: “Macron’s words are surprising.

NATO has never threatened Russia, but has created a common framework for security through the NATO-Russia Basic Document on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security. He said that the problem now is to ensure security in Europe and prevent Russia.

According to the report, Green Party foreign policy expert Jürgen Tritin told Le Monde: “Security assurances are important – but not unilateral. Those who require security assurances must first make a clear commitment to security assurances to Ukraine.

According to the report, Macron said in an interview with French TV 1 on the 3rd that he discussed the future security order in Europe with US President Biden during his recent visit to the United States.

He said: “This means that one of the main points – because President Putin always mentions this – is the fear that NATO will expand to his door and that NATO deploy weapons that may threaten Russia.

This issue will be part of the issue of peace. That’s why we must be prepared.”
