The U.S. European Command chief Air Force General Tod Wolters said to the media via telephone on Wednesday morning that the previous plan of withdrawing some 11,000 troops from Germany has been put on hold. 

“Previous planning that was ongoing for the previous initiative has been put on freeze,” Gen. Wolters said.

“At this very moment, every single one of those options, they are all on hold. They will all be re-examined from cradle to grave,” Wolters added. 

Former President Trump had called for the relocation of the U.S. European Command from Stuttgart to Mons, Belgium, the return to the U.S. of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, which is currently based in Vilseck, Germany, as well as several other moves.
