NATO cannot depend on the whims of the US President: Borrell spoke harshly about Trump’s statements

Earlier, the 45th President of the United States had said that he would encourage Russia to attack NATO countries that “do not pay sufficient dues” to the Alliance.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has spoken out harshly about former US President Donald Trump saying he would not defend all NATO countries if re-elected. Borrell said NATO is not a menu in a restaurant. SKY writes that he said this in a conversation with the media ahead of an informal meeting of EU development ministers.

Borrell was asked to comment on Donald Trump’s statements regarding NATO and his plans to “incite Russia to aggression”. According to the diplomat, the former US President’s statements are meaningless and irresponsible.

Borrell said, “NATO countries cannot say yes today and no tomorrow regarding the defense of the alliance. It either exists or it does not exist.” he added.

The European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell, warned that the Alliance should not be subject to the whims of the US president.

“NATO cannot be an à la carte military alliance subject to the whims of the US president,” he said.

Let’s remember that Donald Trump said that the United States would not defend NATO countries in the event of a Russian attack. He explained this by insufficient financing for the defense sector.

In Poland, there was concern about former US leader Donald Trump’s statements that, as president, he would not be able to protect NATO allies from a possible attack free of charge. According to Deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Schein, countries should cooperate on security and foreign policy issues despite political differences.

US President Joe Biden said Donald Trump’s threats to “encourage Russia to attack a NATO member” were “terrible and dangerous”.
