The Minister of defence of Germany Ursula von der Leyen called for closer cooperation with France in the defense sector, in particular, for the creation of a military Alliance with France.

Earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of France Emmanuel macron instructed the Ministers of defense and Finance in their countries to develop the initiative to create a defense Fund until July 13, when they host the Council of Ministers of the two States.

«The referendum on Brexit and the U.S. election opened our eyes. We Europeans must take their safety into their own hands,» said von der Leyen in an interview to the newspaper Handelsblatt.

«We could jointly Fund European drones from the defense Fund. We could improve air service between Germany and France and to attract other countries. Another project could become a European training officers,» she added.
