German cars pose no security risk to United States, Merkel says

German cars do not pose a security threat to the United States, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday as she appealed for global cooperation on a range of issues from dealing with Iran to preventing another migrant crisis, Reuters reported. 

“We are proud of our cars and so we should be,” Merkel said, adding, however, that many were built in the United States and exported to China. “If that is viewed as a security threat to the United States, then we are shocked,” she told the Munich Security Conference to applause from the audience.
