Ex-German NATO permanent rep on AUKUS alliance: Europe needs RESET in relationship with United States!  (E1053)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to former German permanent representative to NATO, Joachim Bitterlich. He discusses the formation of the AUKUS security pact behind the backs of European NATO allies, especially France, which has had a major diplomatic row with Australia. He also addresses the West’s increasing militarisation against and encirclement of China, the need for a reset of Germany’s and the European Union’s relationship with the United States, the legacy of outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel, NATO policy towards Russia and Ukraine, and much more! Finally, Going Underground’s Deputy Editor Charlie Cooke speaks to Barney White-Spunner, author of ‘Berlin: The Story of a City’. He discusses the history of the rise of Berlin as the capital of modern Germany, the unique character of Berlin which sets it apart from other German cities, the false notion that Berlin’s history is defined by the bloody 20th century, the city’s history of welcoming immigrants, its division during the Cold War, Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial and what it says about Germany, and much more!
