NATO chief: EU needs US troops presence
According to the German media group Funke, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that Europe itself is not able to cope with the task of protecting the borders of the European Union, and for this, he needs US military assistance.
вЂњThe European Union is unable to defend Europe ... as after Brexit 80% of NATO defense spending will go to non-EU countries ... In this regard ... nuclear deterrence and the presence of US troops are absolutely necessary to protect the region ... Any attempt to weaken the relationship between the US and the EU will not only weaken NATO but also split Europe, вЂњStoltenberg said.
