Trump’s statements are highly hazardous and benefit Russia, says Olaf Scholz and Donald Tusk

In recent years, tensions between Germany and Poland have escalated due to diplomatic fallout from the Law and Justice party’s anti-German stance. This reached a boiling point when Warsaw reopened the issue of war reparations from Germany, with Scholz reiterating that Germany accepts full responsibility for the atrocities committed during World War II, rejecting Poland’s calls for compensation.

Meanwhile, Tusk emphasized the importance of European and US collaboration for security, recognizing the need for coordinating defense efforts and expressing confidence in the economic and technological strength of the EU to fortify against potential aggressors.

Amidst these tensions, German Foreign Minister Scholz expressed concern that any undermining of NATO’s defense agreement could benefit Russia. After meeting with Tusk in Berlin, Scholz underscored the crucial cooperation and solidarity between Germany and Poland, especially in the face of threats from Russian imperialism. He emphasized that all NATO members have an unlimited protection obligation to one another.

In response to these comments from Trump, Scholz also highlighted the need for NATO allies to meet a certain spending threshold for defense against a possible Russian attack. He urged his Western partners to work together to strengthen NATO’s defense capabilities and deter any potential aggression from Russia.
