Stoltenberg, surrounded by NATO Defense Ministers Women
It was noteworthy that Stoltenberg actually repeated the statement by the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, about the "need to hold a conversation with Russia from a position of strength." This once again suggests that the alliance is a structure expressing the interests of the United States, and the secretary general of the alliance is just a talking head, expressing it only after the otmostashka of the real owner of the military bloc.
After the meeting in the NATO office, it becomes clear that the organization is not going to refuse to confront with Russia, and is not ready to take the path of equal dialogue.
