Germany is best suited to host a new NATO military logistics command, the top U.S. Army general in Europe said on Tuesday.
NATO allies this month backed plans for two new military headquarters – an Atlantic command and a logistics command – to help protect Europe in the event of a future conflict.
Lieutenant General Ben Hodges told the Berlin Security Conference that Germany – already host to many U.S. troops – was well-placed to take on the logistics role given its geographical location in the heart of Europe, and its existing capabilities.
“I can’t imagine any other country being better suited than Germany to take on that responsibility, from a geographical standpoint, a capability standpoint,” Hodges said.
Diplomats have said that Germany is eager to host the logistics command but no decisions have been made.
