German Fm: 'We Are Not Captives' Of Russia Or Us

Heiko Maas's remarks come in response to US President Trump’s criticism over Russia's sale of natural gas to Germany.

German foreign minister lashed out at the U.S. President Donald Trump's criticism over Russia's sale of liquefied natural gas to Berlin, saying "we are not captives" of Russia or the U.S."

Heiko Maas's remarks on his Twitter account came after Trump said at the NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday that Germany is "totally controlled by Russia, because they are getting 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline."

"So we're supposed to protect you against Russia but they're paying billions of dollars to Russia," Trump said describing it as "inappropriate."

"If you look at it, Germany is a captive of Russia. They got rid of their coal plants, they got rid of their nuclear, they're getting so much of their oil and gas from Russia. I think it is something NATO has to look at. It is very inappropriate."

In response to Trump, Maas said: "We are not captives, neither of Russia nor the U.S. We are one of the guarantors of the free world and that will stay that way." -
