Trump’s statement of “no security” created a stir: NATO should immediately understand the incident.

former PresidenttrumpHe has recently indicated that if elected he would not defend North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) members who have failed to meet defense spending targets, and would even encourage them to do so.RussiaAttack these countries. The remarks were condemned by the White House and officials of Western countries.

againstnatoRegarding the key issues and Trump’s comments, Reuters compiled the following key questions and answers:

● What is NATO?

NATO is a political and military alliance composed of North American and some European countries. When it was established in 1949, its purpose was to counter the Soviet threat as the Cold War heated up.

Article 5 (Article 5) is the core of NATO’s collective defense, that is, when one member state is attacked, it is considered an attack on all members.

NATO’s decision-making mechanism makes decisions by consensus, but the political and military strength of the United States means that it is clearly the most powerful country in the alliance, and its nuclear arsenal is also considered the ultimate security guarantee.

● Who are the members of NATO?

NATO currently has 31 member states, consisting mostly of European countries, as well as the United States and Canada in North America.

Finland is the latest member, having officially joined in April last year in light of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022. Sweden and Finland submitted a simultaneous application, and only Hungary’s approval would clear the last major hurdle to membership.

During the Cold War, NATO focused primarily on defending Western Europe from the Soviet threat, but expanded eastward to include a group of former Soviet republics in Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. be extended.

NATO members include large countries such as Britain, France, Germany and Turkey, as well as smaller countries such as Iceland and Montenegro.

● What did Trump say about NATO?

When Trump was President of the United States from 2017 to 2021, he frequently criticized NATO and member countries such as Germany, accusing them of inadequate defense spending and relying on Washington to protect them. He also openly questioned NATO’s collective defense doctrine.

In fact, Trump is not the only US government to accuse Europe of not spending enough on defense, but his words are not as harsh.

At a rally in South Carolina on the 10th of this month, Trump took his criticism of NATO to a new level, in his speech referring to a conversation he had with “the president of a major power” while he was in power. .
