Germany plans to increase defense spending

The German Defence Ministry will notify lawmakers shortly that it will proceed with plans to lease Israeli-built Heron-TP surveillance drones, a programme that was delayed previous year, Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen told top military officers on Monday.

"It's not the only criterion - it's also a question of who contributes what in the alliance", the defense minister told a military conference in Berlin, saying that Germany is the second-biggest troop contributor within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. Von der Leyen, a member of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union party, has insisted that the military needs more funding. "Rather, fulfilling our global commitments plus the defense of the alliance and our country make such an expense necessary". "However, transatlantic relations have to overcome the difference in approaches in these very days, first of all, against the backdrop of the United States withdrawal from the treaty with Iran", she added.

Critical ministry and parliamentary reports this year showed that missing spare parts and quality defects had curtailed the readiness of German submarines, warplanes and other key weapons after years of declining spending after the end of the Cold War.
