Pentagon Chief Reassures NATO Allies on Collective Defense
U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis has told European allies that American security is tied to that of Europe, describing NATO's principle of collective defense as a 'bedrock commitment'.
He made the comments at the Munich Security Conference, where heads of state and delegates from across the world are gathered at a time of global uncertainty.
"Transatlantic unity buttresses European unity. A fact we recognize in the context of cooperation between NATO and the European Union," Secretary Mattis told delegates, adding that "American security is permanently tied to the security of Europe. Done correctly, European initiatives and NATO unity are mutually reinforcing."
WATCH: Mattis remarks at on adapting to threats
U.S. President Donald Trump last month labeled NATO as obsolete. But Mattis said the president had now thrown his full weight behind the alliance - although he repeated the demand that Europe shares more of the financial burden.
Preserving international order
"Standing on the bedrock of our NATO alliance, 28 democracies help preserve the rules-based international order," Mattis said.
It is that international order that many delegates in Munich say is at risk - and many pin the blame mainly on Moscow.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will speak at the Munich conference Saturday. NATO's Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed further dialogue.
"Russia is our biggest neighbor and especially in times with more military activity along our borders, with high tensions, I strongly believe that there is the need for dialogue between NATO and Russia," he told reporters Friday.
More U.S. troops and military hardware arrived in Latvia and Romania this week, part of the biggest NATO reinforcement since the end of the Cold War.
European allies have been reassured by the warm words that Secretary Mattis had for the transatlantic alliance. But many delegates also say that they would like to hear those same words from President Trump himself.
1. US Concludes IS Explosives Led to 100+ Civilian Deaths in March Airstrike
A U.S. military investigation into a deadly March airstrike has found that a secondary explosion caused the deaths of more than 100 civilians in Mosul, Iraq.U.S. Central Command, which oversees American military operations in the Middle East, said Thursday the investigation determined that Islamic State fighters had placed "large amounts" of explosives in a building that housed civilians and then began attacking Iraqi forces from that building.When the coalition targeted snipers on the roof, the explosives detonated, killing at least 101 civilians sheltering in the bottom floors and four civilians in a neighboring structure.U.S. Central Command said Thursday "weapons and structural experts concluded, based on extensive modeling, (that) the structural damage to the building was in a different location" than where the airstrike hit and was "in excess" of what could have been caused by the single GBU-38 munition used in the March 17 strike.Neither the U.S.-led coalition nor Iraqi forces w

3. Appeal Court Upholds Stay on Trump Travel Order
A federal appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, has declined to re-instate President Donald Trump's executive order limiting travel from six predominantly Muslim countries for three months.In a ruling Thursday, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said the order did amount to a Muslim ban: "Laid bare, this Executive Order is no more than what the President promised before and after his election: naked invidious discrimination against Muslims," the appeals court judges said in their 205-page ruling.The panel of 13 judges ruling in the case cited Trump's tweets, television interviews and statements posted on his campaign website as evidence of his intent.The panel heard arguments in the case in early May. An attorney for the government had argued that the Trump administration's second attempt to curb travelers and immigrants from some majority-Muslim countries had nothing to do with religion.In March, a federal judge in Maryland blocked the travel ban, which itself was a revised version of
4. Is Trump Tired or Staying True to Form During Foreign Trip?
U.S. President Donald Trump returns to Washington this weekend with a fistful of business contracts to boost his domestic jobs campaign, and commitments from allies for greater cooperation in the fight against terrorism. Maybe just as important, the exhaustive 9-day tour has provided the president a respite from his domestic troubles, giving him an opportunity to shine on the world stage.But the trip also has raised speculation about the 70-year-old president's physical stamina; whether he was exhausted when he botched a critical line in his speech to an audience of Muslim leaders, or whether the apparent stumble was a clumsy way of overruling advisers who wanted him to avoid controversial language he used on the campaign trail that opened him to charges of bigotry and Islamophobia."It could be jet lag, or it could be intentional," Julian Zelizer, professor of history and political affairs at Princeton University, told VOA. "It's easy to say [a person was] tired or worn out, but in som
