Il presidente eletto degli Stati Uniti, Donald Trump ha definito la Nato un’organizzazione “obsoleta”. Un giudizio motivato dall’impegno insoddisfacente sul fronte della lotta al terrorismo. “La Nato ha dei problemi. Intanto perché è un sistema obsoleto essendo stato pensato molti anni fa e poi perché i Paesi che vi afferiscono non vi contribuiscono come dovrebbero. E’ obsoleta perché non si occupa nel modo adeguato della lotta al terrorismo” ha detto Trump in un’intervista al Sunday Times in cui però ha anche sottolineato l’importanza dell’Alleanza. Durante la campagna per le presidenziali, Trump aveva già messo in discussione la Nato e il contributo sproporzionato all’alleanza da parte degli Stati Uniti. Nell’intervista ha anche detto che le sanzioni degli Stati Uniti contro la Russia potrebbero essere rimosse in cambio di un accordo bilaterale sulla riduzione delle armi nucleari

US President-elect Donald Trump called NATO an “obsolete” organization, since it is not much engaged in countering terrorism, while its member countries’ contributions are not efficient, media reported Monday. “I said a long time ago that Nato had problems. Number one it was obsolete, because it was designed many, many years ago. Number two the countries aren’t paying what they’re supposed to pay. I took such heat, when I said Nato was obsolete. It’s obsolete because it wasn’t taking care of terror,” Trump said, as quoted by the Times newspaper. Trump noted in the interview to the newspaper that despite those drawbacks, NATO was “very important” for him. Throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump called into question the viability of NATO, the disproportionate US financial contribution to the alliance and Washington’s pledge to defend NATO’s members as per Article 5 of the Washington Treaty that established the alliance in 1949. US President-elect Donald Trump said that the US sanctions against Russia could be lifted in exchange for a bilateral agreement on reduction of nuclear arms, media reported Monday. “For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that’s part of it. But Russia’s hurting very badly right now because of sanctions, but I think something can happen that a lot of people are gonna benefit,” Trump said, as quoted by the Times newspaper
