Ex-Austrian FM on EU-US relations after Merkel says the US no longer reliable

Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has urged Europe to reconsider its defence policy – arguing that Washington is no longer a reliable partner. The warning comes just weeks after the Trump administration indicated it plans to withdraw almost ten thousand troops from bases in Germany.
RT spoke to former Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl. She’s also the author of the book “Diplomacy makes history”. She told us about the difficulties the EU faces in reaching a consensus on foreign policy and navigating its relationship with Washington.
