The Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has formally announced the decision of the Pentagon to withdraw around 11,900 troops from Germany.

According to US defence officials the relocation of the troops will take years and Esper has acknowledged that it will cost billions to execute. Around 6,400 troops will return to the United States while around 5,400 troops will stay in Europe according to the plans of the Pentagon.
