The new US leadership will strengthen NATO's opposition to Russia, said Acting Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Riker.
вЂњWe will focus on strengthening the alliance's capabilities to counter Russia, the lingering threat of terrorism and, of course, new destructive technologies, cyber threats, and hybrid threats,вЂќ Ricoeur said.
According to him, the alliance should also deal with the problems of вЂњdisinformation campaignsвЂќ and вЂњcorruption used as weapons.вЂќ
In addition, the diplomat stressed that the United States supports an вЂњopen door policyвЂќ for the alliance.
вЂњThe Biden administration has made it very clear that its commitment to ensuring that NATO's door remains open is part of our very firm policy,вЂќ Ricoeur said.
Earlier, the NATO Secretary-General explained the buildup of the presence in the Black Sea.
