The United States is not withdrawing its troops from Germany, it will send more troops

The United States will deploy an additional 500 US troops to Germany, said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, a turning point in the former administration’s plan to withdraw its forces.

Former President Donald Trump, who has had strained relations with his NATO allies, has announced he will withdraw 12,000 US troops from Germany, home to the largest US force in Europe – a total of 35,000.

The new US President, Joe Biden, stopped such intentions.

“We have halted plans to withdraw,” Austin told a news conference in Berlin with German counterpart Annegret Kramp-Karenbauer.

“I think the decision to send an additional 500 members of the US military speaks to the level of our partnership and our commitment to NATO,” Austin added.
