James Mattis on NATO


Last quote by James Mattis on NATO

From these numbers, you can see the Afghan forces remain the main effort, and we are supporting them, not supplanting or substituting our troops for theirs. Violence and progress in Afghanistan continue to coexist, but the uncertainty in the region and the NATO campaign has been replaced by certainty due to the implementation of President Trump's new South Asia strategy. This strategy has been welcomed almost uniformly by leaders in the South Asia region as well as the 39 countries contributing troops to the NATO-led campaign.feedback

I believe that you who have withstood oppression can most keenly savor freedom and have never taken it for granted or looked away when it is threatened. Even in the face of a neighbor next door shredding trust, Lithuania has nonetheless contributed to the NATO-led mission far away in Afghanistan. And it has continued to provide capable trainers for the counter-ISIS mission in Iraq.feedback

I would just say I have too much respect for the Russian Army to think they actually believe that there's any offensive capability. They know and the world knows it's a defensive and we deploy only defensive systems to make sure sovereignty is respected.feedback

We will talk to the leaders of each of the nations, and we will work this out in Brussels and we will work together if necessary.feedback

Nato stands united, the transatlantic bond is united. We are going to maintain article 5 as (the) absolute bedrock of the Nato alliance.feedback

Right now Russia is choosing to be a strategic competitor. Russia's violations of international law are now a matter of record, from what happened with Crimea to other aspects of their behaviour in mucking around inside other people's elections, and that sort of thing.feedback

President Trump came into office and has thrown now his full support to NATO. He too espouses NATO's need to adapt to today's strategic situation for it to remain credible, capable, and relevant. I have great respect for Germany's leadership in Europe – and for the ethical performance of your troops on the battlefield.feedback

I have no need to respond to the Russian statement at all. NATO has always stood for military strength and protection of democracies and the freedoms we intend to pass on to our children.feedback

History is clear: nations with strong allies thrive and those without them wither. NATO is central to our defense. It facilitates European stability, and as a military alliance it helps sustain our values. I believe the Alliance must harness renewed political will to confront and walk back aggressive Russian actions and other threats to the security of its members.feedback
