The European allies increase investment, the United States increases its presence in Europe, said Jens Stoltenberg,
BERLIN, 8 Nov. /TASS/. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg did not agree with the President of France Emmanuel Macron, who said that the Alliance has completely lost its coordination within the Union that can be described as “brain dead”. He stated this on Thursday at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.”I agree with Angela Merkel [the German Chancellor a minute earlier said that he did not agree with Macron]. NATO strong. European allies to increase investment, increases U.S. presence in Europe. The reality is that we do more,” he said, commenting on the statement of Macron.
His assessment of the Alliance, the French President gave an interview to The Economist magazine. Thus the Makron commented on the actions of one of the NATO member – Turkey – whose actions in Syria have not been coordinated with other members of the Alliance. The very military operation by Ankara the head of the French state called the blunder of the West and the NATO in the region.
