BERLIN (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron used “drastic words” when he described NATO as experiencing a “brain death”, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday, saying that was not her view.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg also rejected the characterisation during a joint news conference in Berlin.

NATO remains a cornerstone of our security,” Merkel told reporters.
