Germany and the United States – their relationship 25 years after German reunification
Germany will always remember and appreciate the support from the United States during the Cold War and the reunification process after the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. But with new global dynamics since 2000, and new challenges facing the international community, what is the state of the relationship between the two nations a quarter century after German unification on October 3, 1990? German Consul General Herbert Quelle provides his insights arguing that there are both the prospect and the need for a continued strong transatlantic alliance with Germany being one of the main pillars in Europe.
