Ms. Merkel brought a shadow attack at the policies which are being adopted by the countries like the US and said, “There is a new approach in the world that says shouldn’t we look after our own, and ensure that our own are looked after.”

She also quoted that “I have great doubts about this approach. We should always remember that others have their own interests.”

She advised that we need to find out how to move forward and to respond to the wake-up call for the world.
