Verteidigungsminister Mattis empfing seine Amtskollegin von der Leyen in Washington und würdigte die deutschen Beiträge in Afghanistan, Litauen, Mali: „We welcome the announcement that Germany will increase defense spending by 80 percent by 2024. We believe the Wales pledge and Germany's increased spending sends a sobering, stabilizing message to those nations who threaten others, to those who would violate international law to change borders, or attempt to subvert other nations' democratic processes. And we hope Germany's moral voice will continue to be heard by the combined strengths of your diplomats, your development funding, and your strengthening ethical military. For as we discussed in Brussels, threats from the east and the south have not waned, and the united NATO remains the greatest bulwark against aggression.“

“We have no doubt that there was once a noble vision for this council. But today, we need to be honest – the Human Rights Council is a poor defender of human rights.”

United Nations Human Rights Council "UNHRC" not to be confused with UNHCR, the United Nations High Commissioner for #Refugees.
Also not to be confused with
* United Nations Human Rights Committee,
* United Nations Commission on Human Rights, or
* United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

"I welcome the fact that Germany has stopped cuts, Germany has started to increase, and also the plans to increase German defence spending by 80% over a decade. So these are steps in the right direction. I welcome them. And it’s part of a pattern we now see across Europe and Canada where Allies are spending more."

"We will be stopping the war games, which will save us a tremendous amount of money, unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should...
we’ve done exercises for a long period of time, working with South Korea.  And we call them “war games,” and I call them “war games.”  And they’re tremendously expensive.  The amount of money that we spend on that is incredible... under the circumstances that we are negotiating a very comprehensive, complete deal, I think it’s inappropriate to be having war games."
