America retreated its soldiers in the face of Russia

Egyptian News Vision: - In a move that surprised Berlin, the United States decided to withdraw about 11,900 of its soldiers in Germany, bringing the number of American soldiers in Germany to 24,000.

About 6,400 soldiers will be returned to the United States, and about 5,600 more will be transferred to other European countries within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), with many periodic deployments to Europe, US Defense Secretary Mark Esber told a news conference in Washington.

The move, he said, is taking place "in a way that strengthens NATO, enhances Russia's deterrence, reassures allies, and improves the strategic resilience of the United States."

The Pentagon said that the forces that are deployed periodically can be deployed in Poland and northeastern Europe near the Baltic region and southeastern Europe in the vicinity of the Black Sea.

Esber did not specify a timetable for the partial withdrawal of the forces, but he said that it will happen as soon as possible. Some changes may happen within weeks, but others need more time.

The US government had previously spoken of withdrawing about 10,000 soldiers from a total of about 36,000 soldiers in Germany.

"I think Germany is the richest country in Europe," Esper said.

"Germany can and should pay more defense expenditures, and it certainly has to meet the payment of 2 percent as a standard percentage (of gross domestic product), and I will argue over it (that ratio)."

The initial announcement came as a surprise to the German government.
