Europe can't count on USA protection any more: Merkel

Germany France Vow to Stick to Iran Nuclear Deal If US Pulls Out

Many major global conflicts are happening "at Europe's doorstep", said Dr Merkel, who expressed concern about the risk of war between Israel and Iran over Syria. "Europe needs to take his own destiny into their own hands, and this is our task for the future", said Merkel.

Expectations of a regional flare-up were stoked by Mr Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he was withdrawing the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

Merkel said Germany supports the Iran nuclear deal as long as Tehran continues to fulfill its obligations under the accord.

USA slams Iranian 'provocative' attacks on Israel
The US urged "all nations to make clear that the Iranian regime's action pose a severe threat to worldwide peace and stability". The Iranian missiles were intercepted by Israel's aerial defense system, which concluded in sudden explosions in the night sky.

The Middle East was becoming very risky, said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, adding that there was no "Plan B" in response to Trump's move and that France wanted to keep the accord alive even without Washington on board.

"She condemned the overnight attacks by Iran against Israeli military positions at Golan Heights and called on Iran to contribute to de-escalation in the region", he also said.

The quandary was laid clear earlier Wednesday as Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tehran would quit the deal unless European signatories offered solid guarantees that trade relations would continue after the United States withdrawal.

First death from fresh Ebola outbreak confirmed in north west Congo
Congo's long experience of Ebola and its remote geography mean outbreaks are often localised and relatively easy to isolate. Most of the cases so far have been recorded around the village of Ikoko Impenge, near the northwestern town of Bikoro .

The German leader spoke about European unity at an award ceremony in the city of Aachen, where she praised French President Emmanuel Macron for his "contagious enthusiasm" about the continent and said this would inspire young Europeans.

Macron echoed the call to flesh out Europe's common foreign and defence policy.

"In Germany there can not be a perpetual fetish for budget and trade surpluses, because they are always made at the expense of certain others", Macron said, adding that a north-south divide between wealthy and poorer nations that emerged during the financial crisis should not be allowed to resurface. "We made the choice to build peace in the Middle East".
