Zelenskyy responds to pivotal US Senate vote as Russia anticipates NATO conflict in a decade

German Chancellor Warns of Dangerous Consequences of US President’s NATO Comments.

The German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has expressed his concerns about the recent comments made by US President Donald Trump regarding NATO. He called Mr. Trump’s suggestion that the US might not protect NATO allies from a potential Russian invasion if they didn’t spend enough on defense “dangerous” and only serving Russia’s interests.

In a meeting with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Mr. Scholz reiterated the importance of NATO and emphasized that any weakening of its guarantee of assistance is irresponsible and dangerous. The Polish Prime Minister also emphasized the need for closer partnership between the EU, NATO, and the US in the face of mounting security concerns.

Leaders from Poland, France, and Germany pledged to strengthen Europe’s security during their meetings with Mr. Tusk, given fears that a return of Mr. Trump to the White House could lead to increased Russian aggression. In response to these concerns, Mr. Tusk visited Paris and Berlin to establish stronger ties with Europe’s two largest powers. He also argued for the European Union to become a military power in its own right in order to address concerns that Europe was militarily weaker than Russia.

During his campaign rally, Mr. Trump suggested that he might encourage Russia to invade NATO allies who didn’t meet the defense spending target. However, after the invasion of Ukraine, Germany increased its defense spending and is expected to meet the benchmark this year. Despite this progress, Mr. Scholz remains concerned about any further weakening of NATO’s mutual defence clause and calls it “relativisation.”
