Mattis: US 100 percent committed to NATO

The US defence Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday that the United States fully supports NATO and that the Alliance has become stronger as a result of the two-day summit in Brussels thanks to concerted reforms and commitments undertaken by the allies in the interests of collective defence.

Answering the question about the United States ‘ commitment to the Alliance, Mattis said, “Everything is exactly as the President said: we are 100 percent committed to NATO.”

Chatting with the accompanying journalists on the road from Brussels to Croatia, the Pentagon chief added that the Alliance is “stronger today than yesterday than a month ago than a year ago.”
