Germany is ready to extend and expand its support of NATO’s air policing mission in Romania and also to comply with further requests from the alliance, the German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht announced Thursday.

“I have given (an) order to expand and extend our engagement in the air policing in Romania,” Lambrecht told reporters after briefing Germany’s parliament defense committee.

Lambrecht added that Germany was also prepared to comply with further NATO requests.

Earlier today, he said in a statement, ”Russia’s attack on Ukraine is a drastic breach of international law,” adding, ” Putin alone is responsible for the terrible suffering that is associated with it.”

Earlier this month, Germany sent three combat aircraft to participate in the NATO mission to protect Romanian airspace. Germany also recently deployed 350 more troops to Lithuania as part of its NATO engagement in addition to its 550 troops which are part of the German-led NATO combat unit.7 min ago
