Europe can no longer "completely depend" on the US and UK following the election of President Trump and Brexit, German Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
Mrs Merkel said she wanted friendly relations with both countries as well as Russia but Europe now had to "fight for its own destiny".
It follows the G7's failure to commit to the 2015 Paris climate deal, talks Mrs Merkel said were "very difficult".
President Trump has said he will make a decision in the coming week.
"The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I've experienced that in the last few days," Mrs Merkel told a crowd at an election rally in Munich, southern Germany.
Good for the EU, let's grow, internally and on the world stage. Trump's America clearly has its back to the world and isn't interested in it. So never waste a good crisis and make the EU work again for everyone. With Merkel and Macron at the helm, we are on the right path.
