After the victory of Donald Trump at presidential elections in the United States, NATO decided to postpone its next summit, scheduled for early next year, reports Spiegel.
It is noted that the summit may be postponed until summer 2017. The publication writes that NATO intends to give the elected president more time to define his policy towards the Alliance.
In addition, the article states that NATO has huge concerns about Trump.
Spiegel reports that two possible scenarios are now considered, one of them - the cancellation of agreement on rotation of US forces in Eastern Europe, the other - on reduction of US troops in Europe. In the best case, it is assumed that Trump will insist strictly on the fact that Europeans should increase spendings to their own defense.
Let us remind that on November 9, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg congratulated US president-elect Donald Trump with a victory in the elections in the United States. He also said he was looking forward to meeting with Trump in the near future and invited him to NATO summit next year.
