North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders fear Trump crisis at key summit

The summit also will offer Putin a chance to try to persuade Trump to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russian Federation over its 2014 annexation of Crimea, its support for separatists fighting the government in eastern Ukraine and its alleged meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Stoltenberg has stressed the alliance's ability to overcome differences in the past, but Tomas Valasek, director of the Carnegie Europe and former Slovak ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, said the situation with Trump had already undermined its ability to deter would-be aggressors.

"We all have to remember that we are now facing major threats by Russian Federation", the former Texas Republican senator told reporters.

A second round of such behaviour will solidify the view in Europe that the president is irredeemable as a reliable partner, leading to one of the deepest crises in the alliance's 70-year existence.

"Germany, which is the biggest country of the ... This deal is going to be done through the European Union and done in Brussels". "I don't know why, or why he would want to be."...

The SABC's Europe correspondent Jack Parrock reports.

In addition to that there is a sense of anxiety about Trump's relation with Russian Federation. "And we're the schmucks paying for the whole thing".

Putin complained to Trump about the people who tried to stop the two men from talking, reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis found.

"I might even end up having a good relationship [with Putin]".

"Do you know what?"

"And we are standing behind them on that", she said.




The source said that Trump then congratulated Putin on his reelection, and lamented that Russian Federation and the United States didn't get along better. "They are still trying to undermine the election cycle in 2018", said Lindsey Graham. Some U.S. officials expressed their concern about a meeting without any other aides present. If not, at least we can avoid misunderstandings.

Allies are braced for a barrage of invective from Trump for not spending enough on defense, and are apprehensive that his often skeptical tone on the alliance that has underpinned European security for 70 years might turn into outright hostility. In fact, they're howling already.

US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani supports Trumps' upcoming face-to-face summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Will Trump ignore all of this in pursuit of a new U.S. -Russia alliance? "I don't think that's what the United States should stand for". He has pulled the USA out of the Paris climate agreement as well as the Iran nuclear deal, slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, and threatened additional tariffs on products like automobiles.

"Secretary of Defense [James] Mattis is supportive of NATO, the U.S. Ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey Hutchison, is very supportive".

"The new strategy may call for more European military efforts", the former adviser to Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain and Pentagon leaders said.

The president is not known for studying wonky strategy documents.

As with much of his program, Trump's foreign policy is contradictory and ultimately self-defeating.

Ultimately, Trump's the boss.

Much of the rest of Trump's foreign policy is equally freaky. They agreed to further develop bilateral relations.
