Merkel:Europeans should determine their own destiny.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Sunday cast doubts on EU’s alignment with the United States and Britain, saying Europeans should determine their own destiny.

Merkel, addressing a election campaign at a beer tent in Germany’s southern state of Bavaria, said following the election of U.S. President Donald Trump and Brexit, Europeans “really have to take destiny into their own hands.”

“The times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over.” Merkel said.

She said Germany and Europe would strive to have good ties with the United States, Britain as well as other countries, “even with Russia”. But she emphasized that “We have to know that we must fight for our future on our own.”
