In a speech in Berlin on the lessons of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Pompeo said “the West - all of us - lost our way in the afterglow of that proud moment.”

“We thought could divert our resources away from alliances, and our militaries. We were wrong,” he said.

“Let’s stand together in unity,” he concluded. “Let’s stand together as allies.”Reuters
