Pentagon head: NATO does not want war with Russia, but

“NATO does not strive for war against Russia, but will continue to adhere to the principle of collective security.” This was stated by Pentagon Lloyd Austin during a briefing in Latvia.

He noted that the updated position of the Alliance simply reflects the unchanged and solemn commitment to the fifth article.

“An attack on one NATO ally is an attack on all NATO allies,” the head of the Pentagon said, adding that the current situation in world politics requires a faster and reliable response to the challenges.
