Germany has announced that it would raise its military spending to 1.5% of its GDP by 2025.


Germany will tell NATO in July that it expects to boost military spending to around 1.5 percent of gross domestic product by 2025, Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen told Germany’s top military brass on Monday.

This is far more than the 1.2% Germany is currently spending but less than the 2.0% that NATO is requesting from its members.
