NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday it was not right to question the Western alliance’s security guarantee but that he was working to solve a dispute with Turkey over allied plans to defend the Baltics.
Asked if the issue could be resolved by the end of the London summit, he said: “I will not promise that, but what I can say is that we are working on that. But it is not like NATO doesn’t have a plan to defend the Baltic countries.”
Speaking after a breakfast with US President Donald Trump, Stoltenberg said NATO still had strong support in the United States and cited a “big paradox” that while people were questioning the transatlantic bond, citizens backed NATO. “We have bad rhetoric but extremely good substance,” he said.
