DISINFO: Merkel urged Europe to unite against the US


Merkel urged Europe to unite against the US.


Chancellor Angela Merkel did not call Europe to unite "against" the US. She made a pitch for Europe to play a more assertive role in global affairs. Merkel also called for joint action on security and migration, saying the bloc should “Europeanize” its presence on the United Nations Security Council.
