The expert noted that the SPD have always been more critical of Washington, in contrast to the Christian Democratic Union (CDU). Rahr noted that difficulties in relations can also cause defense budget issues.
“The government coalition agreement does not say, as it was under the Christian Democrats, that Germany will spend its two percent of GDP on NATO. This means that serious friction may arise on this issue, “the political scientist said.
Earlier, Rahr said that he sees in the current situation with the migration crisis on the border of Belarus and Poland the risk of a third world war. He noted that the aggravation of the situation could lead to unpredictable consequences. “More and more serious historians and analysts say that we in Europe are already living in a situation that is very reminiscent of the First World War, its beginning,” the expert shared his fears.
