The United States now sees NATO as an alliance to ensure the common security of its allies, and not as a structure to protect them for money, said US President Joe Biden at a press conference of the G-7 summit.
This year’s event was held under the British presidency from 11 to 13 June.
“I will soon go to Brussels, where the NATO meeting will be held. Many of those present here will be gathered there at the negotiating table. We no longer see NATO as protecting (allies) for money. We believe that NATO is important for our common security, Free News quoted Biden as saying. He added that he considers it a “sacred duty” to Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty that an attack on one of the NATO member countries is considered an attack on the alliance as a whole.
