BRUSSELS, January 16. /TASS/. NATO’s senior officials are concerned about remarks by US President-elect Donald Trump who said that the alliance is an obsolete organization, German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said on Monday upon arrival at a meeting of the European Union’s Foreign Ministers.
"I’ve just come from the talks with NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg. NATO is concerned about Trump’s statements," he said.
The German top diplomat noted that remarks by the US president-elect who will assume office on January 20 run counter to the statements made by a candidate for secretary of defense at a hearing in Washington. "We have to see how this is going to affect the US foreign policy," he said.
Trump said in an interview with Bild and The Times newspapers NATO has problems, and the alliance is an obsolete organization.
"I took such heat, when I said NATO was obsolete," Trump said an interview on Sunday. "It’s obsolete because it wasn’t taking care of terror."
