Swedish ambassador admits that Trump’s policies would be “problematic” for NATO

At issue is the fact that the former North American president encouraged Russia to attack financially non-compliant alliance countries.

Sweden’s ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) admits it is “problematic” if former US President Donald Trump’s “real policies” and “rhetoric” about encouraging Russia attacking financially non-compliant alliance countries become a reality.

“The US has the right to demand that Europe pay its share of the burden [de financiamento da NATO]but the fundamental aspects of the treaties, specifically Article 5, are not questioned”, said Axel Wernhoff, Swedish ambassador cited by Lusa.

NATO’s Article 5 states that an attack on a member state of the political-military alliance is an attack on all those that make up it.

The article was only invoked once, after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
