NATO: Mattis shifts accents

NATO HQ: Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis at his press conference read carefully worded statement, with accents on the unity of the Alliance. He also softened the message on budget, expressing belive that there will be no need to ‘moderate’ on the US position, because all the allies understand the importance of  defence. Mattis also hardened the language towards Kremlin, reminding of “Russian aggression” in Ukraine. However the velvet glove did not cast doubts on his intention to implement the initial message both in reforming NATO, ending the system for a number of the European allies to benefit from the the US as security consumers, neither his intention to find new ways to co-operate with Russia on defeating terrorism.
