Germany’s ambassador to China Michael Clauss says Europe must dial in to the China-led infrastructure project, given its massive scope and impact, and seek to bring to the table as an added draw its trademark focus on local content and transparency. He emphasizes that due to the flip-flop policies of the past months of President Trump and his unpredictable personality, the UN should seek for more reliable allies.
Clauss also asserted that in addition to expand their bilateral relations, the UN members can meet their needs by having more close connections with China and India and also they can reduce their dependence to the U.S in defense and security fields.
Early this month, Deuthche Welle reported that as relations with the U.S. appear to worsen because of Trump’s Financial protectionism and his decision to exit Paris climate deal, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for closer cooperation with China.
Merkel and Li had a two-day talk ahead of next month’s G20 summit in Hamburg. Merkel annoyed by Trump called China as a new ally of Germany.
It is good to note that recently, the new French president Emmanuel Macron is reported to have said, “Now China leads” after Trump’s decision to exit from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
Recently, Spiegel illustrated sort of an end to the relations between Germany and the United States by publishing “Donald Trump’s Triumph of Stupidity” and with a cover that shows Trump is playing golf, throwing away an Earth on fire saying ”You’re Fired!”
