NATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg sends a message 13 Nov

BBC reporting

  • Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has warned US President-elect Donald Trump that "going it alone" is not an option for Europe or the United States
  • West faces its greatest security challenge in a generation
  • US would think twice about coming to the aid of any NATO ally under attack if it had not paid its dues

The former Norwegian prime minister writes in today's UK Observer newspaper:

"It is all too easy to take the freedoms, security and prosperity we enjoy for granted. In these uncertain times we need strong American leadership, and we need Europeans to shoulder their fair share of the burden.

"Going it alone is not an option, either for Europe or for the United States. We face the greatest challenges to our security in a generation. This is no time to question the value of the partnership between Europe and the United States."
