"The US and the Russian President have a lot in common: they both try to sell a meeting without concrete results as a success, and they have both become a risk to Europe – Trump with his unpredictability as much as Putin. Both Trump and Putin are attempting to undermine Western democracies. Europe has to stand up against this!

"Before Trump, the US were a reliable partner for Europe, today we are called an enemy by Trump on Twitter without any reason. To call this a change of political strategy would be overrated, this is mere nonsense, and dangerous nonsense at that.

"We will not allow our values of democracy and freedom to be undermined by people like Trump and Putin. Given the current situation, Europe has to stand even closer together. It is up to Europe now!"
