NATO chief meets Biden, Pentagon head; blasts Russia for aggression against NATO states, evokes Article 5 war clause

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg met with President Joe Biden, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on June 7, a week ahead of the military bloc’s summit in Brussels. The trip that brings Biden to NATO headquarters will be his first one outside the U.S.

The Pentagon’s transcript of his meet with Austin provides a clear indication of what the impending summit will dwell on and which actions – and against which nation – the meeting will chart for the upcoming years. Stoltenberg’s comments included:

“The global balance of power is shifting. We see the rise of China, we see Russia continue to be responsible for aggressive actions against NATO Allies, and our neighbors, in cyberspace, through hybrid means, and also the way they have used military force against the Ukraine, Georgia and other countries in that region.”

It is not certain which aggressive actions against NATO members Russia is accused of perpetrating, but based on his comments on Monday and in the recent past they include cyber attacks and reported poisoning of political opponents on the soil of NATO countries.
