    Default commitment

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help me to make a proper choice of an eligible interpretation of the word in bold in the following sentence?

    The head of the Social Democratic Party bloc, Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the government was sending out unclear signals, and that Merkelís hesitance had put Germanyís commitment to European solidarity in doubt.

    commitment = engagement

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Hi Vil,

    I believe "involvement" or "loyalty" are closer to what you need.

    Greetings,
