Germany Defence Minister warns US

MUNICH: (APP) The United States should not put its allies and Russia on the same footing, Germany's defence minister said Friday.

"There cannot be a policy of equi-distance to allies and to those who openly question our values, our borders and international law," Ursula von der Leyen told the Munich Security Conference .

"It means we must pursue a reliable relationship with Russia, instead of going above partners' heads in bilateral negotiations," she added.
